I have a ceramic Penguino pitcher
from Argentina that I was given as a present. I washed it and used it for the first time yesterday for Thanksgiving. Ever since then it has been making a clicking noise, every few minutes, even when sitting alone on the counter or shelf. The click sounds like someone is tapping the pitcher with a small pin; it is very sharp but faint.
I noticed that there are small cracks underneath the clear glaze, though the surface is still smooth and solid. I don't know if they were there before I used it.
I washed him by hand in the sink, though I may have used pretty hot water. I'm afraid that is the root of the problem, though I can't find anything online about it and I still don't know what to do.
Please help me solve this mystery. My penguino is chirping for help!
