Colour and shape
All ceramic pieces are made by hand by Malene Knudsen in Copenhagen, Denmark. Each piece is carefully created with precision and personality and one of a kind. By its nature, it is imperfect and unique. Not two pieces are exactly the same and small variations in form, colour and finish will occur between pieces.
Every effort is made to ensure colours appear as realistic as possible. However, due to the constraints of digital reproduction on different web browsers, the exact colour depiction cannot be guaranteed. Please contact email@example.com if you would like to request colour samples.
Care and use
To care for your ceramic piece, please hand rinse your pieces. They are not dishwasher safe. Stoneware is a semi-porous material, so to prevent sweating and condensation on a surface, please allow the piece to dry out for at least a full day before refilling with water between uses. Stoneware pieces must be handled delicately to ensure that the items remain undamaged. Malene Knudsen is not responsible for broken pieces from mishandling. Depending on the surface you intend to place the ceramic piece on, you may wish to attach felt to the bottom of a sculpture. Malene Knudsen is not responsible for marks left on surfaces that vessels may leave due to the textured surface.
