Wheel thrown & altered stoneware with slab elements. Approximately 9″D x 12″L x 2″H. Overlapping blue, green, cream, & gold glazes. Yes, you can bake in it! When baking at room temperature, the dish is safe to go into a pre-heated oven; however, when reheating refrigerated left-overs, do not preheat the oven. Put the cold dish into the cold oven and heat them up together. If you are juggling oven time and the oven is already hot, allow the refrigerated dish to come to room temperature first.
