Made by hand, the casserole dish is given a classic shape from stoneware clay on the traditional pottery wheel. Beautiful hand-carved leaf pattern, curling handles, and fitted lid, the dish is completed with a glaze combination of black and tan and kiln-fired to a permanent finish. The resulting work is an aesthetically-pleasing work of functional pottery, perfect for your main dish served directly from the oven to the table. The medium casserole holds approximately 2.5 quarts and it's upright shape also functions as a soup tureen.
Note: Stoneware pottery is safe for the oven, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher, but should not be used with a direct flame or on a stove-top. As with all pottery, the casserole should not be placed in a refrigerator when the surface is hot or in a stove/microwave when chilled. Always begin from room temperature or close to room temperature.
