My Second question of the day: people often ask if my work is microwave safe. The truth is, I don't know. I don't have a microwave, and never have. It is fired to cone 5,6 depending on which clay body I'm using. It seems quite vitreous so I assume that no water would seep into the clay body and cause problems in a microwave? Up until now I've just said that I can't guarantee it. Is there a way to tell, short of enlisting a friend with a microwave?

Yeah... you have to pay for the standards documents.
