The Gray-White Ginkgo cup is hand-built from gray stoneware clay. My ginkgo leaf patterns are made either from real leaves that I collect in the surrounding or I use a ginkgo wooden stamp to make them. The cup is glazed with a white glaze and the ginkgo leaf is then painted over with 24k gold.
Each piece in the Gray-White Ginkgo series is fired to a high temperature (ca. 1220c), which makes them very strong and solid, however due to the gold touch, I do not recommend to wash them in a dishwasher. In order to keep the gold finish long, wash the Gray-White Ginkgo series by hand.
All of my ceramic pieces are hand-built and individually finished and glazed, therefore natural variations in colors, textures and shapes from piece to piece are to be expected.
The Gray-White Ginkgo series is completely food safe and lead free.
