Hall China Introduces New “Studio” Collection


Casual dining with the look and feel of handmade pottery

Newell, WV—Bring the art of the potter’s studio to your table without sacrificing strength and durability. The HLC family of companies is proud to present their new Studio collection from Hall China, which evokes the authenticity and feel of handmade earthenware but stands up to everyday wear. 

Blending with other natural elements in your décor, Studio enhances casual conversation over an informal meal. With its gentle bumps and rolling surfaces and subtle glaze variations from piece to piece, Studio channels the creativity of the pottery maker to set an inviting, comfortable table. Studio’s plates, bowls, mugs, and trays in a soft, warm gray or rich, earthy yellow can work alone or together to complement any setting. Studio also mixes well with more traditional pieces to create an eclectic, collected presentation.

Comfortable and casual doesn’t mean fragile, however. Unlike traditional earthenware, Studio has a non-porous body and the high-fired durability customers expect from all HLC products. Their made-in-America craftsmanship means cutting no corners on quality.“Studio is a wonderful, one-of-a-kind collection that offers the texture and sensation of rustic handmade pottery,” said Katie Bricker, foodservice and general marketing manager for HLC. “We think customers will embrace the look and feel of this new line, which conveys the message to relax and enjoy good conversation and a satisfying meal. This is casual style that’s built to last.”
