1.6 Governing Law
These terms and conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Netherlands and you irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in that Nation.
1.7 Materials and Pigments
This collection is developed between 2011 and 2018. In 2011 and 2014 we made two fieldtrips to Cornwall, UK. By treating materials as paint and using them to color porcelain, we developed a color chart with around 300 different colors. Materials originating from the china, tin and copper, silver, and lead industry in Cornwall were used to form the basis for this chart. Therefore it is possible that there is a slightly difference in color or texture, also when you order two or more of the same objects at the same time.
All our materials are being tested and are food- and dishwasher safe, unless mentioned otherwise explicitly.
All our cups, plates and bowls are stamped inside with our signature.
1.9 Coupon codes
Coupon codes are valid on all products from the webshop except the workshops.
