Handmade Cloud Terre wares are:
Cloud Terre pieces are used in restaurants across the country, and are designed to withstand tough commercial environments. To ensure the longest possible life for your pieces, please consider hand washing your pieces and storing them between cloth or felt spacers. Using gentle cleansers and non-abrasive tools will also help preserve your wares.
Like all ceramics, Cloud Terre pieces can be damaged when moved rapidly between temperature extremes. Avoid washing hot pieces in cold water, chilled pieces in hot water, or placing pieces in direct contact with stovetops or flame broilers, to prevent shocking the wares.
Care | Handling
All Cloud Terre pieces are handmade in Virginia using production methods such as jiggering, slip casting, wheel throwing, and hand building. As such, distinctive variations in glaze color, clay body color, texture, and finish occur in our pieces. These unique ‘fingerprints’ contribute to the beautiful individuality of our pieces, and we carefully inspect pieces before they leave the studio to ensure these variations don’t fall outside expected parameters.
Developing unique forms for chefs and properties is a unique joy and privilege. Amber Kendrick, the design director of Cloud Terre Studio, treats custom work as an opportunity for collaboration with the client and the diner, using her architectural experience to develop elegantly functional forms that become part of the properties’ unique voice.
