PRODUCT CARE

METAL

Each piece is created by hand, one at a time, utilizing the same ancient sand-casting techniques that Greeks and Romans used centuries ago to create masterpieces. More than twelve pairs of hands are involved in the creation of each piece.

Of heirloom quality, Beatriz Ball metalware will not tarnish or lose its shine. It can be used with confidence to heat, chill, and safely serve food. 

  • Easy care, never tarnish.
  • Oven safe, up to 350°.
  • Hand-wash with gentle detergent and towel dry immediately.
  • Do not store food or leave in standing water.
  • Do not cut directly on surface or clean with abrasive materials. 
  • For shine pick up, we recommend Maas Metal Polish. 

GLASS STEMWARE

Our glassware celebrates age-old glassblowing techniques in sparkling new designs. Each glass is a unique work of art. Mouth-blown and hand etched by artisans; their techniques add depth and character while attesting to each piece’s handmade, one-of-a-kind appeal.

  • Clear glass is dishwasher safe on delicate cycle.
  • Colored glass must be hand-washed without the use of hard bristled scrubbers or brushes.
  • Hand-wash gently in warm water without twisting the stem and bowl in opposite directions.
  • Glassware should be stored on its base rather than its bowl.

NEW ORLEANS GLASS COLLECTION 

The vibrant and colorful New Orleans Collection captures the spirit of the Crescent City’s unique culture. These hand painted pieces add a rich new dimension to Beatriz Ball’s    product mix.

  • Hand finished glass; FDA safe.
  • Do not use in oven, dishwasher or microwave.
  • Delicate surfaces; handwash carefully.
  • Handmade in Turkey especially for Beatriz Ball.

WOOD

Our wood collection is a marriage of Beatriz Ball's signature metalware and handcrafted wood. Made by artisans in our own woodworking facility, the sand-casted and highly polished gleaming metal offers a dramatic contrast to the handsome and richly textured wood. 

  • Hand-wash with gentle detergent and towel dry immediately.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners or any cleaning material that can scratch the surface.
  • Do not leave water or food standing for extended periods since that may cause staining.
  • Do not soak since this will cause warping.
  • To preserve the beauty of the surface and nourish the wood apply warm mineral oil periodically, let stand for one hour and then wipe off excess. Dry immediately.

Our tzalam wood items are made of a tropical wood that is extremely strong and resistant to water and humidity, making it an ideal material for serving and food use. Considered sustainable, the tzalam tree throws seeds as it grows and pollinates the surrounding area. The tree also enriches soil with nitrogen, so it plays a very important role in areas where the soil has been damaged or burnt. We ensure that our wood products originate in forests that have been responsibly managed according to strict environmental standards. *Odors from oils used to treat wood will dissipate in time.
