Mixed place setting no.1
Design by Barton Croft.
Refined and understated, Barton Croft’s signature dinner plates are the answer to all your dining needs. While hand thrown pottery is often thought of as heavy and chunky, their plates are relatively lightweight at approximately 700g each; you’ll find they stack tightly and easily too, saving space.
Perfect for busy lives, this is the tableware to make mealtimes into memories. If you take a close look, you’ll be able to spot the subtle nuances in the throwing rings differentiating each plate. Their shallow rim design is the perfect balance; high enough to stop sauces slopping as you move across the room, but low enough to tightly stack, saving more space in your cupboards for other things.
Their glazes are mixed by hand in their Hampshire studio, to their own secret recipes that we’ve developed through hundreds of tests. This glaze feels like leather, with a slight sheen to it. It’s a hard and durable glaze and will stand up to any amount of wear and tear; you can be sure there’ll be no cutlery marking on these plates! With a carefully controlled shine, these plates give subtle reflections allowing your food to take centre stage. The simple colours and the timeless and elegant design will suit any type of home décor.
The bases are unglazed, allowing the natural clay to show through. Each bowl is individually sanded by hand in their studio before being washed and packaged to ensure that they’re perfectly smooth so you can be sure they won’t leave any marks on your furniture.
From meal time to midnight snacks, each handmade piece is designed around your lifestyle, not the other way around. You can keep plates warm in the oven, heat up your soup in the microwave, toss leftovers in the freezer. And best of all, handmade doesn’t mean you have to hand wash. They fit easily into your dishwasher slots; no need to leave a space between each one.
