Frequently Asked Questions

Popular Questions

  • How do I best care for handmade ceramics?

    Our handmade tableware is strong and durable but like all ceramics and glass, it can break if knocked or dropped so handle it with care. Little Tree Studio ceramics are fired to 1220°C (vitrified) so you can safely put them in the dishwasher. If washing in the dishwasher be sure nothing is going to fall or bump against your items while washing.

  • Can I put handmade ceramics in the dishwasher?

    Absolutely, all our ceramics tableware is strong, durable and dishwasher safe.

  • Will my item look exactly like the photo?

    We attempt to display product images as accurately as possible. However, due to lighting variations and different devices, the colour in the image may vary slightly from the actual colour of the item.

  • Why does some of your work look wonky and imperfect?

    We don't do perfect! In fact, because each item is 100% hand-made and 100% unique, it would be impossible. Many of our items are purposely made to have organic, free-form shapes - it's just one of the key ingredients that make our work beautiful.

  • What are the micro cracks in some of our work?

    The micro-cracks you see on some of our items is due to “glaze crazing” and is a desired feature in some glazes. Don’t worry, glaze craze is not a crack and will not affect the functional or hygienic aspects of your piece(s).

  • Do you donate products for giveaways?

    We love to help but unfortunately, we can’t help with every cause. Our chosen cause is Lucky Stars Sanctuary. Lucky Stars care for animals and alleviate animal suffering by providing refuge and treatment. They also deliver education to the community about animal welfare issues and care.

  • What is wabi-sabi
