All my functional pottery is food safe, lead free, dishwasher and microwave safe and some can even go in conventional ovens.

Very alarming like the day I walked out to get into my car and "Smiley" was right there in the driveway. She then crawled up under my tire and lay there for a while.......until she got good
and ready to leave. I surely did not want to get bit trying to get into my car.

After 30 years working in the ceramic medium, I was determined to learn how to produce crystalline glazes. They are labor intensive but the results are fascinating.
This is the above pot with a close up view of the crystals. I used cobalt carbonate and manganese to get these crystals.
My first pots experimenting with crystalline glazes were small. This one I'm holding. I used copper carbonate for this glaze.
A close up of the above pot.....nice, delicate crystals.
