HLC Adds Third Color to Popular Brownfield™ Line


Charcoal hue now available in this artisan-inspired collection


Newell, WV—Looking for inspiration? The Brownfield™ collection from the Homer Laughlin China Company has been inviting creativity to the table since its introduction last year. This line evoking the spirit of the urban maker quickly became a customer and consumer favorite, and has now been expanded to include a third color: deep, rich Charcoal joins the cool mid-gray Pewter and warm-toned Cobblestone.

The dramatic new Charcoal color features a black/dark gray rim that plays off a speckled gray interior, creating the perfect canvas for your most creative menu items. Colors and textures pop on every piece.

Brownfield’s stylish, curvy coupe shape and peppery glaze — in all three colors — gives each item a handcrafted look. The collection was recently rounded out with more accessories and now offers a range of plates, platters, cups and mugs, ramekins, and eight different shapes and sizes of bowls.

“This durable ‘urban artisan’ collection was immediately popular with our customers when we introduced it last year,” said Katie Bricker, foodservice and general marketing manager for HLC. “The new Charcoal color stands strong by itself or complements our Pewter and Cobblestone colors perfectly. You can mix the colors and pieces together and set a very unique and appealing table.
