These stoneware baking dishes are wonderful for baking bread or roasting vegetables and serving your favorite dish to your favorite people. I make them on the potter's wheel with stoneware clay. After they dry a bit, I hand form them into their final shape. I make the handles big enough for you to easily grab with your oven mitts on. These baking pans are wonder for oven to table cooking. They keep your food so nice and warm on the table, making dinner very cozy.
