Our -SABLO- tabletop range is made of stoneware. The three available colours of the range may beautifully be combined. In general Stoneware is manufactured from clay, quartz or minerals such as calcite and is defined as a group of ceramics products. Stoneware is used to produce plates, dish bowls, cachepots and bowls, moulded at very high temperatures (app 970°C to 1320° C (1778 F to 2408 F) ) using casting techniques. The higher temperatures during the firing process make stoneware more stable than clay and less translucent than porcelain.
The colours depend a lot on the firing temperature and -time, therefore each piece can show individual structures and shades. As stoneware is not watertight in itself, it often is glazed to achieve this state. It is stable and durable. This is also the case with our stoneware range which makes it ideal for everyday use. Nevertheless, it can happen that stoneware articles show a cutlery abrasion. This is not a defect of the product, but a completely natural process, as the glaze was fired at a lower heat than the ceramic underneath.
Use and maintenance:
Our dinnerware is dishwasher safe and can be used in a microwave oven.
