For five generations, the Henry family has been making tableware and bakeware in Marcigny, France. True to tradition all Emile Henry pieces are carefully crafted from Burgandy clay, found nautrally in the region. The mineral-rich clay is combined with 100% natural ingredients to create a product unsurpassed for even heat distribution. Through the unique Ceradon process, each piece is fired with an extremely durable glaze that gives the finished product a naturally non-stick surface- which will not scratch from use or cleaning. The properties of the material and careful craftmanship allows your Emile Henry pieces to go directly from the freezer to a hot oven. All Emile Henry product is freezer, oven, broiler, microwave and dishwasher safe. Emile Henry is now proud to introduce a new line of dinner and cookware that combines hearty tradition and natural technology with modern form and hues. With the Urban Colors Collection, Emile Henry renews everyday oven and tableware with new shapes and colors. Warm, earthy tones: Slate, Sky, Sand and Figue, are the perfect addition to the modern home.
