Cook on Clay was launched in 2010 as a response to a growing customer base demanding more and newly designed flameware products. Cook on Clay pottery is 100% designed and handmade in America. Most other high quality cookware sold in America is made by European companies in Asia. Resisting the siren song of foreign manufacturing, Cook on Clay has invested in building a sustainable woman-owned local business.
Founders Robbie Lobell and Maryon Attwood are experienced clay artists who have long used flameware in their work. Working from their studios and manufacturing annex on Whidbey Island in northwest Washington, they have built a company around the idea that there is no better way to prepare and present food than in handmade pottery.
We believe cooking and serving food in handmade pottery forges connections -- with the farms that grow it, the earth that nourishes it, and the people who share it. As our company grows, reaching customers across America and beyond, we hope that those connections will take root in many communities.
The Cook on Clay mission and vision celebrates the importance of slow food, local food, international food, and the communities these foster. Continuing a long tradition of American craftsmanship, Cook on Clay melds beauty and utility in every piece to honor the deeply gratifying, universal act of cooking.
