Full of texture

Our chunky china is very different to mass-produced pottery.  Expect to see thumb prints, specks in the glaze (which may also be thicker in some parts than others).  If there is colour on it, remember it is hand painted so there may be areas where the colour has taken more than in others - it’s what makes our chunky china unique and full of character

Base care

Because the base of most of our chunky china is unglazed you may notice over time it leaves a dusty residue on a shelf; this is easily wiped away with a damp cloth. 

With vases (or jugs being used for flowers) please only place them on water resistant surfaces – we suggest you use a coaster for protection

Place don't push

Please be mindful that because Marigold and Lettice china has unglazed bases your pottery needs to be lifted and placed, rather than pushed or pulled to ensure it doesn’t scratch any of your surfaces

Hard wearing

Marigold and Lettice pottery is 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​. Unless it has gold on it - then please please don’t put it in the microwave!  It isn’t frost proof though so bring anything in over winter!

Ages wonderfully

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