Welcome to KOVACK POTTERY! We are located in Seagrove, NC. Our pottery is all hand-turned, hand-built, and hand-painted here on the premises.

How To Use Our Kitchenware

Our pottery is 100% LEAD-FREE and safe to eat from. It is also safe for use in your conventional oven, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher. However, DO NOT EVER USE IT OVER A DIRECT HEAT SOURCE like a stove-top. Also NEVER PLACE IT INTO A REFRIGERATOR DIRECTLY FROM A HOT OVEN OR INTO A HOT OVEN DIRECTLY FROM A REFRIGERATOR because a sudden change of extreme temperatures can cause thermal shock and crack the piece in half. When baking in a conventional oven, you can preheat as required in your recipe ONLY IF both the food and the pottery do not come straight from the refrigerator because of the reasons stated above. In that case don't preheat, but place in a cold oven instead.

We don't glaze the bottoms of our pottery, so do not stack our pottery unless you place a cushion inbetween them. Otherwise, the bottom of one piece can scratch the glazed top surface of another piece.

You will find you can bake wonderful pies, cakes and breads without sticking, if you first grease and flour our pottery. You will, however need to reduce the baking temperature by 25 degrees because pottery retains more heat than metal pans do. This means that hot foods and beverages served in our pottery will stay hot longer on your dinner table, and cold food and beverages will stay cold longer.
