Are all products from Oditi Designs made in Australia?
Yes; we design and make all our porcelain ceramics in our home studio in Sydney, Australia. We do not outsource any part of our production process to third parties.
What material do you use to make your homewares?
All our homewares are made from porcelain.
What is porcelain?
Porcelain is naturally strong, vitreous, translucent ceramic material.
Raw materials that make up a porcelain body are kaolin, feldspar, quartz and clay.
Is porcelain vegan friendly?
Yes! Porcelain is vegan friendly.
Is the gold colour on the cups and vases real gold?
Yes, partly. It contains 12% real gold. The gold colour is a ceramic material called gold lustre. It is a ceramic paint applied over the top of the gloss glaze and fired in the kiln to allow the lustre to fuse with the body of the ceramic piece.
How do you wash porcelain pieces with gold lustre?
Hand wash gently in warm soapy water.
Do not wash in the dishwasher.
Can I put my porcelain piece with gold lustre in the microwave?
No. Due to the gold metallic material, this product must never be put into the microwave.
Where do you buy your materials from?
We proudly buy all our ceramic materials and other materials such as packaging, and earring findings from family businesses in Australia.
What does my order come packaged in?
We try very hard to use sustainable packaging for all our products.
We use cardboard boxes and biodegradable void packing material for all our products.
Some products might be wrapped in recyclable and degradable bubble wrap.
What is your biodegradable void packing material made from?
Our biodegradable void packing material is made from corn starch and it is environmentally friendly. If you put the white peanut like shapes in water, they will dissolve.
