Frequently Asked Questions
Pampa Bay items are made from high-fired porcelain with titanium coating. Some items are glass with titanium coating.
Porcelain is a white clay used for functional items such as plates, bowls and platters. The chemical composition of porcelain is a combination of clay, kaolin, feldspar, silica and quartz, but other materials may be added.All Pampa Bay items are free from lead or other heavy metals.Porcelain is fired at high fire temperatures above 2300°F. The body vitrifies during firing resulting in surface that is very smooth and non-absorbent.
Titanium is a lustrous metal which traditionally has a silver color. It is resistant to corrosion in conditions which are usually problematic for materials such as silver, aluminum and copper. It is also very lightweight and strong with the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element
