Homer Laughlin Presents New “Earth-to-Table” Fresco Line


One-of-a-kind design with distinctive matte glaze


Newell, WV—The ever-changing earth is nature’s canvas for creativity. The Homer Laughlin China Company® captures that natural beauty and energy in its new Fresco dinnerware, bringing the art of the earth to the table.

Fresco was created in collaboration with John Britt, a studio potter, educator, and author whose specialty is ceramic glazes and glazing. Fresco’s unique soft matte glaze evokes the evolving beauty of the earth’s surface through the use of minerals in the pottery-making process. The result is a one-of-a-kind design revealed in swirling patterns that seem to move across each piece. Fresco is a conversation starter, and every piece is a work of art.

Fresco was created with the latest techniques in ceramic design and pottery engineering, so it offers the strength of HLC’s American-made ceramic dinnerware while delivering the look and feel of a handcrafted original. Fresco’s terra-cotta tones and distinctive finish offer a rustic presence that’s sure to impress and inspire both chefs and diners.

“No two pieces are alike, which makes the whole collection come alive,” said Katie Bricker, foodservice and general marketing manager for HLC. “The effect of the minerals brings an energetic, earthy design that will showcase any cuisine and set an engaging tabletop.”
