We hope you love your Marigold and Lettice china and that it gives you endless joy!
Marigold and Lettice pottery is made to be used, loved and enjoyed; it’s made using sturdy earthenware clay and a thick white glaze. This means it’s hard-wearing and every piece can safely go in the oven, dishwasher, microwave and even the freezer.
Each piece that is made by Marigold and Lettice is totally handmade and a one-off. So, if you see thumb prints in the clay or the glaze that may be thicker in some parts than others, it's because each piece is unique and is what gives our chunky china its specialness, and a different look and feel to mass-produced pottery.
When you first get your chunky china piece you may hear a ‘ping’ - especially the first time the pottery meets with water. If you do, please don’t worry, it's really quite normal and will stop as soon as the glaze/clay settles down together. You may also notice that the bottom of every piece is left unglazed, and this may leave a slight residue on your shelves, but can be easily wiped away with a damp cloth.
Like with all china, over time you may also notice signs of use in the glaze, but these are just signs of the china being well-loved. If this is the case, please be assured, the piece will still be perfectly fine to use.

For those who have purchased a vase, you will see that the vase is fully glazed inside, it has an unglazed base. Because of this, and because it will have water sitting in it for an extended period of time, you may see water residue underneath the vase. To avoid this being a concern for the surface you leave it on, you will be sent - free of charge - an appropriate-sized coaster to stand the vase on. This might just need a wipe now and again!

These burners are designed to be used with 4-hour tea lights, not the larger 8-hour ones. We suggest you light the candle outside of the burner and let it have a good flame before you place it gently in the base of the burner. If you keep it nearer the front of the burner it allows for air to keep circulating through.
