It’s a tragic moment, when you (or someone else) breaks a treasured pot. We know, we’ve been there. Our pots are like friends in our kitchen, keeping us company, playing a large role in celebrations and day-to-day life. They’re special. So when one breaks, it’s the pits.
We get requests to help match new lids or new bases. We try, really hard. But the truth is, when we make the pots we make the lids to fit the bottoms. And we double, triple check that the lids sit on and fit the base just right.
If you need a replacement piece the first thing to do is send detailed photos.
I took these to show you what we’re looking for. The rim of the lid has to fit right in the “gallery” of the pot. The gallery is the dip in the base where the rim of the lid sits.
Once we receive your photos, we look for a possible match. If we can find a match, we will get it to you. But we always include the warning, it may not fit as well as the original. It also may be a slightly different color because it would have been in a different firing and each firing is unique.
Depending on the lid, we have different replacement prices. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the photos and the photos and we’ll let you know the likelihood of replacement and costs.
If you live locally and can bring the remaining pot in to be matched in person, that’s even better.
Here are the photos we’re looking for (we know that depending on the break, you may only be able to send photos of the remaining pot, that’s okay):
