Homer Laughlin Expands Popular Brownfield Collection


New items unveiled at NAFEM 2017


Newell, WV—The Homer Laughlin China Company has expanded their popular Brownfield line, introduced last year, from 13 to 23 pieces. Brownfield™, with its curvy coupe shape and peppery-speckled glaze, embodies the renaissance of the urban “maker.” Each piece owes its handcrafted appearance and individual color variations to a two-step glazing process—a true expression of the potter’s art. Brownfield lends an authentic vibe to your establishment, whether farm-to-table bistro or bustling neighborhood café.

Brownfield’s distinctive deep-well pieces offer stackable flexibility, generous plating space, durable storage, and easy handling. Rustic and inspiring, Brownfield brings creativity to the table in pewter, cobblestone, or charcoal.

New accessories include a variety of bowls, platters, and ramekins to complement the existing line, which includes a sturdy, functional, and aesthetically appealing selection of plates, mugs and saucers, pasta and salad plates, and soup bowls. Since its introduction last year, Brownfield has become a top choice for establishments looking to bring creative cuisine, innovative plating, and an authentic feel to every dish.

“Brownfield has proven to be very popular, so we decided to extend the line with 10 additional pieces,” said Katie Bricker, foodservice and general marketing manager for HLC. “With the multiple additional accessory items, Brownfield can do full-service duty on its own in a single color, mixed and matched using both colors, or added in as attractive accents to complement a restaurant’s existing ware.”

Brownfield is fired on a strong ivory body base and designed with HLC’s dedication to quality, part of its made-in-the-USA promise. It offers a better resistance to chipping and cracking and takes stacking like a pro, which translates into long-term durability and cost savings.
