Caring for mugs

At Oakwash, we take great pride in crafting each and every one of our mugs with care and precision, prioritizing your satisfaction and safety. To ensure that every sip from our mugs is not only enjoyable but also worry-free, we apply a food-grade safe interior coating to each piece, making them perfect for savoring your favorite beverages.

Our commitment to quality extends beyond the interior. We fire our clay bodies to Cone 6 (reaching temperatures of 2232°F), resulting in a beautifully vitrified and sealed exterior. This not only enhances the aesthetics but also guarantees the durability of our creations.

However, we'd like to share some tips to help you get the most out of your artisanal mugs. While our crackle glazed pieces may develop charming character over time, they can potentially stain. Additionally, our highly fired stoneware, while robust, can be more delicate compared to mass-produced wares. 

For the best care of your mugs, we recommend hand washing whenever possible and avoiding strongly staining foods or liquids. Promptly rinsing them after use and minimizing extended contact with liquids, especially overnight, will help preserve their beauty. While our mugs can withstand the dishwasher and microwave, they may not be as resilient as factory-made ceramics when exposed to these machines. Handwashing is the ideal choice for maintaining their artisanal quality.

Please note that for items with quantity options, there may be slight variations from the pictured product. Every mug we create is unique, and these subtle differences add to their charm. For mugs listed without quantity options, you can expect them to closely match the provided image.

We appreciate your understanding and adherence to these guidelines, as they are designed to enhance your enjoyment of our artisanal ceramics. If you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you for choosing Oakwash for your ceramic needs.
