Colorful Cookware: Terra Cotto Ceramic Pots from Italy

October 29, 2015

Currently coveting: Terra Cotto, Milanese architect Stefania Vasques’s colorful, angular clay cookware line. Made of fireproof terracotta known for its heat-diffusing properties, the pots can be used on stovetops, in ovens and microwaves, and over flames; they’re also fine in the dishwasher. We like their matte colors and Russian-Constructivist-style geometry.
