Product Care


All of our plates, dishes, and mugs are made from porcelain and hand-glazed in a range of unique colors and finishes.

As with any small-batch or handmade ceramic item, some variation or unevenness within the glaze is to be expected. We consider these natural variations to be part of the inherent beauty of each piece.

Over time, certain glazes may collect some marking from flatware use. These marks are superficial and can be easily cleaned away by using Barkeepers Friend cleaning powder and a soft cloth.

Care should be taken to avoid dramatic temperature changes (for example, pouring hot liquid into a cold bowl or mug), as this may result in cracking.

Dishwasher, refrigerator, and microwave safe. 

Merchant Home glassware is made from sturdy borosilicate glass. It will stand up to regular use, retain clarity, and requires no special care.
