Ideal for oven-to-table serving, this oval platter is ideal for warming in the oven before bringing to the dining table. Made from terracotta, it has a colourful floral pattern and a touch of Mediterranean charm.
Sun-drenched holidays in Southern Europe inspire our Alfresco range. Each piece in the range uses authentic materials: rich terracotta, crafted olive wood, decorative woven baskets, earthy red slate, dipped glassware and colourful woven textiles. Each pattern references the decorative wall and floor tiles, found in both humble kitchens and elaborate places throughout this part of the world. And a saturated palette is borrowed from the Mediterranean sea, sleepy fishing ports and the warm earth tones of stucco-clad buildings.
Choose the perfect china
All our china is made from clay and kiln-fired for durability. Except for pieces with special trims, everything is dishwasher safe. Below are a few options to consider when choosing your perfect china.
|Earthenware||Strong and practical, perfect for everyday. Its cream colour and low firing temperatures allow for designed pieces.|
|Stoneware||Tougher than earthenware and chip resistant. Ideal for heavy use and can often go into the oven to temperatures of up to 250°C.|
|Terracotta||Uses a clay with a rich body colour giving the characteristic base colour, and has a low glaze firing allowing bright coloured glazes. Porous body allows for good thermal expansion and contraction properties making it an ideal body for cookware such as tagines and roasters.|
|Porcelain||Delicate yet strong. Carefully selected clays give whiteness and translucency. It can often go from oven to table.|
|Fine china||The synthetic bone ash used in fine china makes it a more affordable alternative to bone china whilst maintaining the benefits - strength, translucency and delicacy.|
|Bone china||Bone china is made from 40% bone ash. This makes strong yet thin and delicate pieces which are microwave, dishwasher* and oven safe making each piece ideal for everyday use, not just formal.|
