Temuka Pottery Glazes
The glazes on Temuka pieces are fired to 1200 Deg.C. These are applied to bisque porcelain (also fired to 1200 Deg.C.). This ensures that the glazes are as hard and as durable as it is possible to make them as they become part of the porcelain. Because of this and the absence of water absorption the glazes will not craze in normal conditions. Lead is not used in the glazes, which means they are always food safe.
