La Chamba Oval Platter

We call this line, the "Le Creuset of pottery" Seriously, it's gorgeous, light weight, and easy to maintain. Available is 8" 10", 12", and 14" -- perfect for cooking, serving and even eating! Made entirely by hand, dimensions vary slightly. Not recommended for the dishwasher, but hey, sometimes we cheat and so far so good.

Black clay Chamba cookware is well-known throughout Colombia and has been used for preparing and serving traditional dishes for hundreds of years.  It is still made in the traditional manner, by families in the village of La Chamba, on the banks of the Magdalena River in Central Colombia. Each piece is hand-crafted using local clays, burnished by hand and fired on-site. Chamba is strong enough to use on the stovetop, oven or microwave. Cooking with clay creates food that is healthier, tastier and moister!
