We hope you love your Marigold and Lettice china and that it gives you endless joy!

What to expect

When you first get your china you may hear a ‘ping’ - especially the first time the pottery meets with water.  If you do, don’t worry! It will stop as soon as the glaze/clay settles down together 

Base care

The bases of all our chunky china are unglazed which may, at times, leave a slight dusty residue underneath the piece. Never fear, it can easily be wiped away with a damp cloth.  However, it is important to avoid putting any china that has sitting water in it, such as a vase or jug with flowers in, on any surface that could be damaged by a damp base

Place don't push

Please be mindful that, because the unglazed base, your M&L china pieces need to be ‘lifted and placed’, rather than ‘pushed’ to ensure it doesn’t scratch any of your surfaces

Full of texture

Each Marigold and Lettice piece is handmade and a one-off, so, if you see thumb prints in the clay or if the glaze is thicker in some parts than others, it's  what gives our chunky china its specialness and uniqueness.  Don’t forget, our chunky china has a very different look and feel to mass-produced pottery

Hard wearing

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, fridge, dishwasher and the microwave​

Ages wonderfully

Like with all china, over time you may also notice signs of use/grazing in the glaze.  These are just  signs of the china being well-loved​ and you can continue to use and enjoy your pieces
