Flameware is made of a clay formulated to resist thermal shock and withstand direct contact with high heat. It can be safely 

used directly on the stovetop, barbeque, or campfire.  

Flameware brings all the heat retention benefits of cast iron without any need to season the pot.  Its glazed surface is low stick and easy to clean. The pots will look as beautiful on the table as they do on the stove and radiate a soulful glow. A wonderful way to bring ancient and historical clay pot cooking into the modern age; increasing durability while maintaining tradition.
