Using your Island Stoneware

Yes, all our pottery is oven safe to 425F. It is also safe to use in the microwave and to put in the dishwasher.

No, we do not recommend you transfer cold stoneware to a hot oven. Instead we suggest letting your warm up at room temperature on the counter. A reminder that your cooking times will be longer when start with cold food.
Cracks, no. Chips, maybe. Cracks are a source of weakness and you run the risk of your pottery breaking while using it which might mean scalding hot coffee or tea in your lap and/or broken pieces of pottery in your food. If you chip your dish and no crack has formed then it is likely just a cosmetic issue and your pottery will still be oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. The chipped area may become a weak spot on your pottery so check for cracks before each use.

Pottery Workshops

We offer 2-hour "Play in Clay" workshops which featuring building pottery from slab using forms (think putting a pie crust in a pie shell). We do not offer lessons using the potter's wheel. Find a workshop and register here.
No, we do not. The PEI Potters Studio in Charlottetown offers courses for using a potter’s wheel.
Our minimum booking is $300. This covers from 1 to 4 people. After that, the cost per participant is $75. Our maximum capacity is 12 people. Find a date and register here.
Yes and no. The workshop is not targeted at a specific age group. Our best guidance is this: if the participant can focus on a single activity for 2 hours then it is an appropriate activity. The workshop provides facilitation and guides participants through each step of the pottery making process. Child supervision is not offered and children 12 and under must have an adult present. A supervising adult is only charged a registration fee if making pottery.

Broken Pottery

Cracks, no. Chips, maybe. Cracks are a source of weakness and you run the risk of your pottery breaking while using it which might mean scalding hot coffee or tea in your lap and/or broken pieces of pottery in your food. If you chip your dish and no crack has formed then it is likely just a cosmetic issue and your pottery will still be oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. The chipped area may become a weak spot on your pottery so check for cracks before each use.

Maybe. Vessels and lids are made at the same time and lids are trimmed to fit the specific vessel for which it was made. Because pottery shrinks during the drying and firing process, vessels and lids are always kept together to maintain the best fit.

It is possible for us to make new lids but we require the actual vessel in the studio as a reference. Multiple lids will have to be made to try and create a good fit. It is unlikely the new lid will fit as well as the original lid. Prices will vary depending on the size and type of lid. For more information, please contact us.


Wholesale Orders

Yes, sell wholesale. However, at this time we are not taking on new wholesale customers. To learn more, please contact us.
