What materials are toxic in Ceramics?

Testing for toxicity

Testing for toxicity:
Toxic or hazardous materials can also be ingested by the contamination of food by toxic metals released from fired ware. Pottery for domestic use should be tested for metal release and conform to British Standard: 4800 parts 1&2 (Part 2 is for cooking only). Most pottery suppliers will arrange for this test to be carried out.
