We celebrate the soulfulness of artisanal craftsmanship and the idiosyncratic beauty of handmade imperfections. In harmony with essential quality control standards, a bump here or an extra wash of glaze there are signatures that let us revel in the human craft. With a story behind each piece, no two Juliska products are identical—thus uniqueness is guaranteed and treasured.
Our alluring Bohemian glass is mouth-blown by master glass blowing artisans in the hills outside Prague. The unique composition of Juliska glass allows it to be blown especially thin, making the glass an unexpected pleasure to drink from and to handle. Being handmade, no two pieces are identical. Each has its own individual character – which may include small bubbles and size variations. Each piece of Juliska Bohemian glass is individually signed, as a guarantee of its authenticity and quality. Juliska glass is lead-free.
Care— Not suitable for hot contents, freezer or microwave use. Most pieces are residential dishwasher-safe on the top shelf, set to a warm, gentle cycle with a mild detergent. Hand wash large, highly decorated or hand painted pieces.
Whether hand pressed or mouth-blown our Berry & Thread, Carine, Colette and Arabella glass collections are as durable as they are beautiful. Each has its own individual character – small bubbles, slight color and size variations will appear. Juliska glass is lead-free.
Care—Dishwasher safe. Not suitable for hot contents, freezer or microwave use.
Our Portuguese stoneware ceramics echo the same artisanal production as Juliska glassware. We have developed a variety of exquisite transparent, opaque, and metallic glazes on a tough Portuguese stoneware body. All are lead free and each has the same tough durability to handle the most demanding everyday use.
Care—Dishwasher, Freezer, Microwave and Oven Safe. Our stoneware is oven safe up to 500 degrees. Please note that our collections which include a real gold and platinum, such as Firenze Medici is recommended for hand washing and not suitable for the microwave. Our hand painted Acanthus Gold collection is safe for dishwasher, oven and freezer, but not suitable for the microwave.
Metal markings on ceramics—While not common, metal trail markings do periodically occur on the stoneware surface over time dependent on your flatware. This is not due to a manufacturing defect in our ceramics. These marks are not scratches, but steel residue on top of the glaze left by stainless steel flatware. Should you wish to remove these markings, we recommend a product called “Bar Keepers Friend.” This product has been tested and proven to be effective.
Recommended storage—We suggest that Pewter Stoneware be stowed with dish liners to avoid scratches.
