Welcome to Northwest Skillet Company

We are proud to present our handmade skillets crafted in Oregon from 100% American made steel

Hand Spun Carbon Steel Pans

Our pans are hand spun using the ancient craft of metal spinning for a smooth, fine grained surface that seasons beautifully. Peter Clark is unique in producing a handmade carbon steel skillet that combines metal spinning with hand forging. The craft of metal spinning is a lost art which dates back to the time of the ancient Egyptians. Peter is self taught in this age old craft which requires dedication and focus to master. See the results in our beautiful blue skillet pans. Each is a work of art in its own right.


Hand Forged Designs

The original designs of our hand forged skillet handles compliment the beauty of our pans. Choose from four designs crafted to be as comfortable in the hand as they are beautiful in the kitchen. From the traditional motif of the Pioneer Series to the clean lines of the Glacier Series you are sure to find a design that suits your taste and style. 

Hand Forged Blue Skillet Pans

Natural Finish

Our hand forged skillets come to you with a beautiful blue heat patina on the natural steel. This is the result of high heat applied in the workshop and it starts the seasoning process for you. Our handmade skillets are chemical free and with continued use and care will build a naturally non-stick seasoning coat. Chemical free!

How the Skillets are Made

Steel, copper, bronze, wrought iron. These are a few of the materials that Peter Clark works by hand into skillet creations for your home. Peter brings over 30 years of experience in fine craft to his blacksmithing work.

One of a kind skillet handles are forged through fire, hammer and anvil to be pleasing to the eye and the hand. Each carbon steel skillet pan is made by hand on a metal spinning lathe using techniques invented by the ancient Egyptians. In the true artisanal tradition, Peter works each piece individually with care and commitment to artistry and function. A true work of art from his heart to yours.
