"Travis McFlynn has worked with the likes of Peter Voulkos, Paul Soldner, John Toki and Peter Callas, he states. He brings the skills he learned at the potter’s wheel to create a line of ceramic flameware of his own design. Today, his list of “collaborations” with Bay Area chefs grows and grows. His flameware line, “Oso,” is built of ceramic and is versatile enough to handle cooking in gas or wood stoves or wood-burning ovens. Among their features are the ability to withstand use in “high volume” restaurants, a semi-porous material that allows heat and moisture to circulate through the pot and a non-reactive surface that, unlike metal pots and pans, can accommodate acidic foods."
