Red Dragon Cookware was a range of designer cookware based on a new fluted shape. These items however have become almost impossible to find due to problems with the fully vitrified stoneware body. In some instances larger items would crack in the oven and the glaze did not pass tough regulations set by the USA and so any items sold in the UK were withdrawn. The cookware was originally designed to be both ornamental and useful and was called Red Dragon because of the vibrant red glaze placed over a black clay slip undercoat. This made the black show through the gorgeous red on raised areas giving each piece individuality. A great range for determined collectors to search for.
