Please make sure all studio pottery pieces, old or new, used for food or drink are tested for lead! According to the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA)... Today many potters of traditional or'folk' pottery have switched to non-lead glazes, but they may still be using old kilns that were once used for firing lead-containing glazes, unintentionally contaminating the'lead free' pottery with lead residues that remain in the kiln from past usage. Because the lead may not fuse into the non-lead glaze, it may contaminate food when the pottery is used with food.If you have any questions, please ask.
