Care and use of raw metal items:
We love patina. A vintage mottled grey kitchen knife, a fiery red and orange copper pan, or mottled chocolate and gold-colored brass, like the pattern on a tortoise shell....a pattern that changes with your contribution of good food and memories. Many of our designs are inspired by antiques, and many of our items are raw material without plastic coatings and will continue to age and take on subtle color changes with more love and use. All pieces can be safely used with food, and should be washed BY HAND - no dishwasher please, and then soon dried with a soft towel, much like your heirloom silverware. Hand washing is another opportunity to spend quality time with your unique item! We send items out with a beeswax finish that will slow down the subtle color changes, and make them emerge more evenly. If you want to polish it back up, instead of using traditional chemical-based silver or brass polish, you can use a mixture of equal parts lemon and fine salt, and massage it with the scouring side of a sponge, in a circular motion, over the item.
For items with copper, brass, or bronze, please do not use for long periods with foods that tend to be acidic (tomato/lemon/etc). For long term immersion, they are best used for anything else (coffee, tea, spices, chocolate...). If a greenish 'verdigris' tarnish occurs, it is important to scour it off with the above directions (lemon & salt).
Please contact us for any other questions or concerns.
