Because of the process and type of raku glazes, these pieces are not recommended for use where food or drink will come in direct contact with the surface. Items like wrapped candies and wrapped chocolates would be fine, as long as the actual candy or chocolate does not come in direct contact with the surface.
These breathtaking raku pieces have been hand-thrown, hand-glazed, and fired by a woman with years of experience making original, and highly sought-after, work. These one-of-a-kind pieces are made by HaldeCraft artist-in-residence, Colette (Cetty, to her friends). Cetty has studied ceramics at Western Carolina University and Penland School of Arts and Crafts, and has twenty years of experience working with clay. She has been, at various times in her life, an amateur geologist, owner of a rock/gemstone store, owner of a pottery store (where she did both production and lessons), and she is a wonderful and beloved wife, mother, aunt, and grandmother. She currently travels across the US visiting family with her husband and their dog in their RV, and has stopped at HaldeCraft to make beautiful pottery, give lessons, teach about throwing and wood-fired kilns, and appreciate Florida sunsets.
