On our wish list: Terra Cotto, Milanese architect Stefania Vasques's colorful, angular clay cookware line. Made of fireproof terracotta known for its heat-diffusing properties, the pots can be used on stovetops, in ovens and microwaves, and over flames; they're also fine in the dishwasher. We like their matte colors and Russian-Constructivist-style geometry. Photography via Unison Home , except where noted. Above: Vasques designed the Terra Cotto line for Italian cutlery company Sambonet (now a division of Rosenthal). There are nine oven-to-table casseroles in five matte glazes; each comes with a terracotta recipe booklet. Photograph via the FonQ , which offers the line in the Netherlands and Belgium. Above: The 9.5-inch-tall, 5.5-quart  Terra Cotto Sage Green Conical Saucepot with Lid  is $150 from Fitsu.  Unison Home  of Chicago also offers the line, though it's currently sold out. Other US retailers include Rodale's and Bliss Home .  Above: The 3.5-inch-tall, 4.25-quart  Terra Cotto Casserole in Nutmeg is $135 from Sambonet.  Above: The 3.75-inch-tall, 6.25-inch-wide  Terra Cotto Saucepot in Saffron is $115 from Rodale's. Above: Each pot has a dark glazed interior for easy cleaning. The four-inch-tall  Terra Cotto Oval Casserole  is $170 from Sambonet. Above: Sambonet has also begun offering a capsule collection of the designs in  cast iron . This Terra Cotto Cast-Iron Casserole in Saffron is $115. Photograph via Sambonet.
