All of our glazes that are placed on functional ware are completely food, microwave and dishwasher safe. We do use a few glazes that are non-food safe but they are used only on decorative items that are not intended for food use. So, yes you can actually use this stuff so that it is as practical as it is beautiful.
If you have something specific that you would like made Abba can do that for you as well. We do custom orders and would be more than willing to work with you to get you what you want. The average turn around time for special orders is approximately 3 weeks from the date of the order until the item is finished. Leave a message on the contact us page and we will get in touch with you right away.
