La Chamba 3-qt Crockpot, $72 at La Chambaware

I’ve had a crush on La Chamba cookware for quite a while. Wouldn’t they look stunning on a rough-hewn farm table?  They take direct heat (gas flame only) and go from oven to table.

Made in Columbian, the shapes are hand molded rather than thrown on a pottery wheel.  The pots are red to begin with, turning black via an intense firing process called “smoking.”  The slight sheen is not a glaze.  The finish is achieved by burnishing the clay with agates and semi-precious stones before firing.   Read more about the process here.  You can buy La Chamba here, here, and here.
