Practical yet elegant, our hand-crafted black clay La Chamba bowls, plates, and dishes are made in the small village of La Chamba, Colombia. The sophistication and usability make these traditional dishes and plates perfect for cooking and serving to everything in between; whether classic round plates, relish dishes, or oval dishes, these pieces are so versatile that they can be used in the oven, over flame, or in the microwave to reheat leftovers. The all-natural dinnerware is made by families using local clay that is stone-smoothed by hand and fired on-site. La Chamba dishes, plates, and bowls are functional enough for everyday use and sophisticated enough for special occasions.
Create and serve delicious homemade meals with our clay pasta bowls, ajiaco bowls, and dishes in a multitude of sizes and shapes. Whether using a bowl with base for your favorite soup, or a small serving bowl for a salad, these bowls, plates, and dishes feature a dramatic color that makes for stunning presentations at holiday parties and special events. The Colombian clay contains Mica, which gives Chamba the ability to heat evenly, while the clay’s porous nature allows slow evaporation of steam, keeping food fresh and delicious.
Black clay dishes are non-glazed and completely lead-free, making them the safe choice for any conscientious professional or home cook. If you're looking for a unique gift idea for your favorite environmentally conscientious home chef, the Chamba pitcher or oval platter are essential pieces that can start a collection or expand on existing pieces.
