Here are a few hints to help you better care for my work.
Although my work will not fall apart in either; dishwashers and microwaves are not recommended.
I recommend hand-washing my work in order to clean either food or dust. The surfaces may change over time depending on how my worked is used. Heavy use may create a patina-like surface, due to the oils in one’s hands. Many people delight in these changes as others prefer to keep the surfaces in their original state. The decision is up to you as to how you “use” my work. However you chose, my hope is that it will bring you enjoyment while sitting on a shelf or holding butter on your counter.
