roro in Clay! We had a lot of fun designing this table-ware set. It's actually classic stoneware, double-kiln fired up to porcelain levels, is food-safe, microwave-save, dishwasher-safe, and even oven-safe (up to 300 F). The finish reminds us of earthenware clay terracotta, but with a noticeable mettalic tinge. It's a beautiful family, and the mastery required to achieve such a luster on the ceramic is very evident when you pick this set up. This is high-end restaurant grade tabletop serveware, and you will cherish these plates for years to come. Enjoy!
