Formed from terra cotta drawn from the heart of the earth, each Courtly Check ceramic creation is handcrafted from start to finish in our studio in Aurora, New York. China paints are delicately applied by our master artisans. A beautiful juxtaposition of ivory and onyx, our deceptively simple signature checks reveal an intricate spectrum of jewel-toned colors. Each piece gets stamped by the artisans involved in its creation as it goes through the process, making its way from raw clay to finished works of functional art for your table.
