Behind the Collection - Studio Craft
01 | STATEMENT STYLE
New for 2017 - Studio Craft is the epitome of Denby’s artisan and handcrafting skills with stunning textural glazes perfected over 200 years and reinvented for a modern audience. Inspired by the trend for an honest and rustic aesthetic in the home, the range features bowls, plates and platters designed with laid-back entertaining in mind and is a great collection for mixing and matching with your existing tableware.
02 | DESIGN INSPIRATION
Studio Craft 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. This artisan collection combines smooth and ridged textured pieces and features woody colourways in Elm, Birch, Walnut and Chestnut, creating a natural aesthetic when stacked or mixed with existing pieces.
"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." - Denby Design Team
03 | PERFECTLY MADE
This quality stoneware collection, which is made in England, has been created using skills perfected over 200 years. The spectacular glaze reaction in the kiln ensures each piece is carefully created and completely unique. The ability to be used in the oven, microwave, freeze and dishwasher makes this tough enough for everyday and stunning enough for best.

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.
