FAQ'S

CARE

 

VESSELS

Frank Void vessels are designed and created to live in a commercial environment and will survive the microwave, dishwasher or oven. But like all things loved and cherished best practice would be to treat with care and hand wash for longevity. All surfaces are sealed on your Frank Void vessel either with glaze that you can see or the raw clay surface has been sealed with a food safe sealer that repels liquids greatly minimising staining.

IMAGES

Frank Void vessels are individually handmade by Frank with love and intent to be as perfect as the original design intended. But each will vary slightly with makers marks unique to each piece, and the  slightly different path each takes on its evolution from the custom mix of clay to firing and glazing.

This we celebrate it is the personality traits of your unique piece of art.

 

Every piece starts as a ball of clay weighed to specific number, this is consistent.

Frank Void makes to width, tolerances will be within +/- 5mm.

 

The digital image of this product represented online is shot to represent the vessel colour and tone as close as possible. It will be slightly different in real life, due to the magic of camera, digital, screens, lighting, my poor eyes.

BREAKAGES

Arrgh breakages break hearts and nobody needs that...Frank Void stands behind the pieces he builds each is considered, made with love and intent and passes through his hands many times in the making process, this is the quality control process and only the best make it through, so if you think your vessels is not quite right or has broken unfairly let us know we would love to replace it.

PACKAGING

I would love to design and print custom packaging for Frank Void to deliver your wares,

but have made the decision in favour of responsibility to the environment.

So the game was on for new technologies and reuse ingenuity. A lot of thought, trial, testing and error went into the current packaging and will continue as we search for that right balance.

I hope you can see the understated effort and past what would of been nice high impact custom branding!

But I feel better that what is going to the trash is already up-cycled or enviro friendly and hope you do to.
