When I am exhibiting at an art festival, I often hear great work but is it food safe? Can use it for my coffee tea, hot chocolate? Yes, my mugs are hand made by me and glazed with food safe. Kitchenware made in the USA are generally food safe, however, you can’t be so sure about products made in China or other parts of the world. When you purchase a mug that is hand made you know what you are taking home. Buy a commercially made piece and you will have to check where it is made and if you want to to the chance if it is food safe.In purchasing from a local artist you support them and you purchase a piece of art for your home.
