Pottery from Richard and Robin Sanchez

Fired Up Clay Works - Great Looking, Hardworking Terra Cotta - The Favorite of Cooks for over 10,000 Years!

Terra cotta is Italian for baked earth. The warm, rich clay is a wonderful choice for the modern, natural home. The raw, elemental clay brings echoes of the past which join with fresh new colors to make something useful and beautiful. The work is made to be used and enjoyed. Terra cotta cooks like a dream - it holds the temperature and transmits the heat well. It is all oven and dishwasher safe. All of the pottery is leadfree.

Richard and Robin have been creating their handmade pottery in their Eugene Oregon studio for over 30 years. They hand throw, build or mold each piece. After the pot dries they paint it with up to 15 coats of our own underglazes. These colors are fired into the pot and will never fade. They then coat the pot with their leadfree glaze.
