Rain Dragon Artwork
original art from Rain Dragon Studio is meticulously created by hand.
Special care is needed beyond a "similar" factory-made or machine-made
Please read instructions before using or washing.
You now own a piece of my pottery, so you can do whatever you want with
it. Personally, I do put my pottery in the dishwasher and microwave, but
I know these two appliances will shorten the lifespan of any ceramic piece.
You will have to make your own decision about using the dishwasher or
microwave. Just know that they can cause breakage to occur. Therefore,
the instructions below recommend you NOT put handmade pottery into these
appliances, in order to extend the lifetime of your pieces. Pottery can
outlast you if it is cared for with best practices.
Hand-built and fragile, please do not drop! Dishes are food safe unless
specified. Handmade pottery is safest if you wash by hand, however never
soak in water. Do not use dishwasher as water absorption will occur which
makes breakage more likely. Please do not put into the microwave as breakage
can occur upon rapid heating. Never heat on the stove top. If you choose
to put into an oven, you must place room temperature dish onto cold racks
in a cold oven, then gently heat the oven to the desired temperature.
& Beer Mugs:
Hand-built and fragile, please do not drop! See Bowls & Dishes above.
Also, never hang handmade mugs by their handles: the handles will eventually
break off. As with all handmade pottery, rapid heating causes breakage.
Therefore please gently pre-heat your mug before filling it with hot liquid.
After preheating, add hot water to the temperature suited best to the
beverage, such as 187°F for coffee and 165°F for most teas. Note1:
Pouring boiling liquid into a handmade mug is not recommended as it will
likely crack or break. Note2: Dark clay pieces can get really Hot!
Handmade & fragile, please do not drop! Mud People can go outside
under a tree or stay inside with your potted plant or on a shelf. If you
put them outside, please bring inside in the winter if you want them to
stay in tip-top shape as they could absorb water and chip or crack with
cold or freezing temperatures. If you don't mind the weathering caused
by the elements, then feel free to leave outside all year long.
Moon Sand Paintings & Luminous Fusion Paintings:
Please hang inside and don't allow to get wet. Direct sunlight will likely
cause fading. Frame will break if painting is dropped.
