======================
Ceramics, one of humanity's earliest industrial endeavors, has always possessed a captivating artistic essence, even in its nascent stages. The vast and diverse tapestry of tribes and peoples that once called the lands of Bulgaria home has left an indelible mark on the region's cultural heritage. Over the ages, a kaleidoscope of ceramic traditions has been woven, influenced by the Thracians, Romans, Slavs, and Proto-Bulgarians, all bearing their unique imprint. The proximity to the Mediterranean, with its opulent and varied culture, has also significantly shaped the evolution of Bulgarian crafts.

At DankoHandmade, we reverently embrace these traditions, reinterpreting them with a contemporary sensibility. Each of our product lines possesses its own distinctive style and character, yet they all share the comforting warmth of the Bulgarian land.

🌟 The Ceramics Journey:

FIRING - Transforming Earth into Art

Firing is the transformative crucible where clay evolves from its humble, pliable beginnings into durable ceramics with the strength and resilience of stone. Ceramic pieces have endured through millennia, all thanks to the marriage of clay and fire.

In the kiln, clay and glazes are subjected to scorching temperatures, with the ultimate goal of maturing them to their peak, achieving the ideal level of fusion (albeit on a molecular scale). Bisque firing is the inaugural step, taking the pottery to high temperatures. This process vitrifies the clay enough to prepare it for the application of glazes, without going to such an extent that it would hinder the adherence of glazes. After the glazes have been expertly applied and dried, the pottery is gingerly loaded into the kiln for the final glaze firing. Every pot is carefully positioned to ensure they don't touch, preventing the glazes from melding and fusing the pots together.

The kiln is meticulously heated to the exact temperature required to bring the clay and glazes to their pinnacle of perfection before gradually cooling. Only once the kiln has cooled can it be cautiously opened and unloaded.

Join us on this remarkable journey where tradition and innovation merge, and where artistry emerges from the alchemy of earth and fire.

    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.
