The ceramic pieces are made of stoneware fired at extremely high temperatures to create harder, chip resistant clay, which provides an even heat for baking. Glazes are combined with the stoneware to create a unique finish. The occasional pinhole and color variations are considered normal and natural to the ceramists and lend themselves to the handcrafted old world look of The GG Collection. With age tiny lines called crazing may form in the glaze. This is a unique characteristic of stoneware and does not affect the durability or safety. The bases and accents are cast aluminum with an applied finish.
All glass items are made by a mouth blown process. There will be a wavy distortion from the flow and cooling process of the glass. Occasionally small air bubbles are visible that are part of the glass making art and not considered imperfections.
All GG items are handmade and slight imperfections can be expected.
