What clay + firing method do you use?
Great question! There are three types of wares you can get–earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain. Each of these have different costs, hold up differently, and also have different technical considerations. Stoneware is the most durable of the three choices for residential and commercial purposes. They also reflect the values and purposes of the intent of my products–everyday use.
At Bungalow Potter, I use a several clay bodies that are stoneware. Whether they are brown, red, speckled, or white, they are all stoneware–vitreous, durable, resistant to chipping. Stoneware is a food safe, chip resistant, quality product.
High-firing temperatures are critical to achieving maximum durability. To be considered true stoneware, products must be fired at a minimum of 2100°F. Bungalow Potter fires in an oxidation with electric kilns to Cone 5-7, approximately 2185-2264º F.
Bungalow Potter durable stoneware is ideal for commercial use, in both glazed and unglazed applications.
What kind of clay/firing method do you use?
At Bungalow Potter, I use a several clay bodies, but my main two are a modified stoneware / porcelaneous clay that is very similar to a traditional stoneware–vitreous, durable, resistant to chipping. Bungalow Potter fires in an oxidation with electric kilns to Cone 5-7, approximately 2185-2264º F.
Can I mix colors?
Yes, please do.
The Bungaloware™ colors are meant to go together in various combinations. You can be assured that I’ve put a lot of thought (understatement) into my products, colors, and especially their pairings and combinations within collections.
Please note, that some standard colors / glazes are only available seasonally, within collection / with certain products, and some unable to be used on different clay bodies.
How true are your colors?
That depends on your monitor, but they’re as true a possible. Plus, with glazes, there’s always a little variation between firings. But, you should get the gist of it looking at the pictures.
Also, I can send samples and/or color chips for a small fee.
What is a typical 5-piece placesetting?
Usually, a placesetting is a dinner plate, salad plate, soup bowl, cup and saucer.
However, I’m not a big fan of the status quo–one size does not fit all. It can be very limiting and isn’t practical for how people actually live day-to-day.
I will say that I most often sell sets of the dinner plate + bread plate + bowl + mug.
For those who love to truly entertain, dinner plate + salad plate + delta bowl (salad) + low bowl (soup) + bread plate and cozy mug.
How long will I have to wait for a custom order to be completed?
Usually 3-5 weeks, depending on current production schedule, events, and current inventory. I contact all my customers and give an approximate delivery date at the time an order is placed. Orders made from in-stock inventory usually ship within 3 business days.
