Stoneware, a resilient and nonporous form of pottery, undergoes a high-temperature firing process that sets it apart from other ceramic materials. Its durability, resistance to scratching, and distinct opacity distinguish it from porcelain.

At DankoHandmade, we uphold the tradition of stoneware craftsmanship by subjecting our creations to a meticulous two-step firing process. First, the bisque firing raises the temperature to around 900°C, setting the stage for the subsequent transformation. The glaze firing, the crucial second step, takes place at a range of 1100°C to 1280°C. This controlled heat application melds the glaze seamlessly onto the pottery, ensuring both beauty and durability.

One remarkable quality of stoneware is its minimal water absorption, measuring less than 1 percent. This property makes it perfectly safe for the rigors of dishwasher use, even on intensive cleaning cycles.

The Firing Process:

GLAZE FIRING
The glaze firing is the pivotal second act in the creation of stoneware. Once the glazes have been meticulously applied to the bisqueware and allowed to dry, each piece is carefully positioned in the kiln. This firing stage requires precision, with temperatures ranging from 1100°C to 1280°C (2020°F to 2350°F), depending on the specific materials used.

Notably, during this process, the pots must not come into contact with one another. Even a slight touch could cause the glazes to merge, leading to an undesirable fusion. The kiln's heat is skillfully regulated, gradually reaching the ideal temperature to mature both the clay and glazes. It is then slowly cooled. Only after this cooling phase concludes is the kiln carefully opened and its precious contents unloaded. This final step marks the culmination of the journey for the vast majority of stoneware pieces.

At DankoHandmade, we take pride in crafting stoneware that not only captivates with its aesthetic appeal but also stands the test of time through its remarkable durability.

    Privacy policy

    This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

    INFORMATION I COLLECT
    To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

    WHY I NEED YOU INFORMATION AND HOW I USE IT
    I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
    • as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
    • when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
    • if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
    • as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

    INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
    Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
    • Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
    • Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
    • Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
    • Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

    DATA RETENTION
    I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for up to four years.

    TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION OUTSIDE THE EU
    I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

    YOUR RIGHTS
    If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
    • Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
    • Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
    • Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
    • Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
