With their distinctive side handles, El Dorado casseroles have been crafted in the shape of the traditional ‘cazuela de frijoles’. We love using them to serve side dishes, nibbles at a cocktail party or for everyday use, alongside a more traditional set of chinaware.
We suggest a mix and match to bring more texture to your table.
Founded in 1966 by Pedro Antonio Bello and his wife Fabiola Rendon, Cerámicas El Dorado is a family run ceramics workshop located in the town of El Carmen del Viboral in the Antioquia region of Colombia. Having completed his masters degree in ceramics in Argentina, Don Pedro Antonio fulfilled his ambition of opening his own studio in El Carmen, a town already known as a center of excellence for hand painted floral ceramics. Today, El Dorado is one of the most prestigious workshops in the region, where Doña Fabiola with her children and grandchildren carry the strong family legacy forward with their innovative design aesthetic.
