During production and as a result of our high-quality standards we produce a quantity of Near Perfect pieces every week. During kiln firing slight variations in temperature can occur which result in glazed pots appearing slightly lighter or darker than the ideal standard or minor surface imperfections can arise. These are purely cosmetic blemishes and in no way detract from the safety strength or durability of the pieces concerned.

It is fully vitrified (the surface is made glassy and non-porous) which gives it strength durability and chip resistance.
