I first saw a set of Chambaware at a client's house and had to try and find them. Inexpensive, totally non-toxic, washable and bakeable, this extremely dark servingware is stunningly beautiful in an romantic and austere way. Use it at a candlelit supper on a black table cloth in the middle of winter, or with red wine on a midsummer evening. it is a durable showstopper. Look for the plates and bowls in particular.
