Sam 3 Visually the piece is very nice, but I was led to believe this cup is food safe. The glaze blistered on the inside and that's a big no-no for pottery used for food. Chemicals from the clay and glaze can leach into the food because it is not sealed, pieces of the bubbles edges can break off into your food, and those little pits create uncleanable nooks and crannies that can harbor germs. Please do not label your ceramics as food safe when these issues are present. I respect creators, and normally I would try to settle any problems in private before leaving a bad review, but this is a safety issue. As an additional side note, the product picture made it hard to determine the shape of the object, and I thought it would have straight sides like a cup, not tapered like a planter. So, as a said, a lovely piece but not what I wanted.
