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. You will see that the bottom is unglazed, and this may leave a slight residue on your shelves, but can be easily wiped away with a damp cloth.
Place don't push
Please be mindful that, because the base is unglazed, 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 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 what gives our chunky china its specialness, and a different look and feel to mass-produced pottery.
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.
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.
