The stunning new Studio Craft range from Denby provides an informal collection of bowls, plates and platters for casual dining and new-fashioned entertaining.
Denby Studio Craft is the epitome of Denby’s artisan, handcrafting skills and stunning textural glazes perfected over 200 years. Denby Studio Craft is inspired by the trend for an honest and rustic aesthetic in the home and tableware. The quality stoneware collection, which is made in England, features a range of bowls, plates and platters designed with laid-back entertaining in mind. The range combines four tonal glazes in rich, earthy hues and takes influence from soft natural tones, raw textures and subtle glazes being introduced into ceramics in 2017.
Using skills perfected over 200 years, a spectacular glaze reaction in the kiln ensures each piece is carefully created and completely unique. This artisan collection is available with either a smooth or ridged texture and features woody colourways in Elm, Birch, Walnut and Chestnut, creating a natural aesthetic when stacked or mixed with existing pieces.
The informal tableware collection is designed to complement a variety of global foods. It includes a wide range of bowls in various shapes and sizes, ideal for pasta, ramen and rice dishes, to reflect the nation’s continuing love of bowl food. Additional items include the coupe dinner plate, oil bottle with cork stopper and cheese platter, which can complement existing tableware to create a stylishly laid-back setting.
Richard Eaton, Head Designer at Denby, says “When creating the new Studio Craft collection, we took inspiration from the trend for natural textures, colours and materials, as well as the growth of restaurants and chefs using functional yet carefully selected and handcrafted ceramics in their food presentation.
In addition, we wanted to reflect the trend for laid-back communal dining and the casualisation of meal times due to global food influences, such as the rise of bowl food, which is changing the way we eat and serve food at home”.
