Thanks to Workshop Residence , a San Francisco organization that pairs visiting artists with local manufacturers, sculptor Gay Outlaw and woodworker Bob Schmitz undertook a foundry project in a material that was new to both: cast iron. Their long journey resulted in a Dutch oven that blurs the line between art and utility. It's at the top of all our wish lists.  Above: Outlaw Schmitz Cast-Iron Dutch Ovens are available with a rounded or squared bottom and lid. They each hold three quarts and are $180 each, or $340 for the pair, at Workshop. (N.B. The duo are taking orders for their second batch, which is expected to be ready on December 17, with more to follow.) Above: The cast-iron lids have a wood-grain pattern.  Above: Each Dutch oven comes lightly oiled with canola oil and requires preseasoning, by being heated in a oven for three hours before use.  Above: The pots are cast in sand in small batches at AB&I Foundry in Oakland, California, and are made of 99 percent recycled iron. Above: The bottom of the Outlaw Schmitz Dutch Oven proudly states its roots. For more products designed by Workshop Residence artists, go to the  Workshop Online Store . Live in the Bay Area? Visit Workshop at 833 22nd St., in the Dog Patch neighborhood. Cast-iron cookware is having a renaissance.
