The Pink Ginkgo cup is hand-built from ivory stoneware clay with speckles. 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 jug is glazed with a pink satin glaze and the ginkgo leaf is then painted over with 24k gold.
Each piece in the Pink 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 Flamingo 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 Pink Ginkgo series is completely food safe and lead free.
