A journey through the Intertubes recently landed me at the homepage of Montes Doggett. The stunning line of Peruvian ceramics is the work of Mexican designer Monica Porter.

Not only are the handmade pieces in the collection an elegant addition to any table, they are also highly functional: each is microwave-, dishwasher-, and oven-safe. Here are a few of my favorites.

I love the pinched-together look of the sugar and creamer set as well as the company's "Third" pitcher.

The oven-safe tajine is designed for cooking tasty stews whereas the divided dish is ideal for snacks and appetizers for a casual get together.
