New Brownfield™ Dinnerware From Homer Laughlin: Urban Style With a Handcrafted Look


Brownfield to debut at NRA 2016

Newell, WV—The Homer Laughlin China Company is proud to introduce Brownfield, a new dinnerware line that offers endless opportunities for creative, inspired plating. Brownfield is equally at home in farm-to-table bistros, bustling neighborhood cafés, and intimate night spots. With its curvy coupe shape and peppery-speckled glaze, Brownfield embodies the renaissance of the urban “makers” — a new generation of artisans who are returning to the art of the handcrafted product. It’s time to bring that essence to your table.

Brownfield’s beautifully shaped deep-well pieces and handcrafted appearance lend an inviting vibe to your establishment — a little bit rustic, a little bit urban, and every piece a little bit different. Its one-of-a-kind glaze is available in two colors: white speckles dappled on a cobblestone (warm brown) base or speckled white on a pewter (gray/metallic-tinged) base. The 13 items in the line, including a variety of plates, bowls, platters, cups, and saucers, are part of Homer Laughlin’s durable ceramic ivory body collection. The pieces offer sturdy stackability and excellent heat retention. And the company’s quality craftsmanship and high-fire temperatures mean that pieces with multiple glazes, such as Brownfield, are even more resistant to chipping, cracking, and crazing.

Brownfield brings energy and creativity to every menu presentation. On its own or mixed with your current tableware, this is the impression you’ve been waiting to make.

“Brownfield is a fantastic way to distinguish yourself from competitors,” said Katie McIlvain, foodservice and general marketing manager for HLC. “Adding accented flair to the table can really help make a distinct and lasting impression with guests and take your dish composition to the next level.”

All Homer Laughlin dinnerware is lead free and designed, manufactured, and produced in the U.S.A.
