All Chelonia Cermics are hand-crafted in small batches by Amber Wallour. Amber creates each batch of Chelonia wares through a process that extends over weeks at a time. She loves to tinker with new ideas and techniques on a regular basis to further develop her work.
Because the pots are made by human hands, they have slight variations in size, shape, color, and etchings. In general, these differences are celebrated as one of the many charms of hand-crafted work, because they reveal that the maker was a person, not a machine.
Chelonia wares should be treated with care. Please hand-wash your pots, and do not pour boiling water directly into a pot, particularly if the pot is cold to the touch. Chelonia pots are microwave but not oven safe. Every pot is coated in a vitrified, food-safe glaze.
Most of all, Amber hopes you enjoy the pots as much as she enjoys making them.
