Denby Studio Grey Brew Medium Jug
Denby Studio Grey is part of Denby’s wider Studio collection which is inspired by the trend for a natural aesthetic in the home using honest materials and ceramic crafting techniques. With a dramatic charcoal band of colour framing many items and its contemporary granite and quartz-coloured textured, reactive glazes, Studio Grey creates a casual, uncluttered yet impactful look which works around the home and far beyond the kitchen.
This quality stoneware collection, which is made in Denby’s 200 year old factory in Derbyshire, England, features a range of bowls in many shapes and sizes for a variety of foods and uses for ultimate versatility, and coupe plates and platters are designed with laid-back dining and entertaining in mind. The range is highlighted with a number of impactful lifestyle pieces such as the handleless mug which is ideal for herbal tea, a smoothie and as a pen or toothbrush holder; the ceramic tile which can be used as a mug coaster, small canape plate or a tea light base or small ridged bowls which are perfect for dips and tapas sharing or even as jewellery and trinket dishes.
Nicola Wilson Senior Designer at Denby, says the colour palette has been created in line with the trend for matt grey tones in kitchens and home decor and also natural stone worktops and tables. The range has been designed to be clean and uncluttered – simplicity is key. Studio Grey has been designed to be styled in different ways to suit the customer and the occasion whether as a standalone tonally matching range or as individual items to create impact within your existing collections.
Denby Pottery est 1809
Denby’s handcrafted stoneware is made from the strongest Derbyshire Clay. When it comes to durability, their stoneware is the stuff of legends. That is why the brand have been producing pottery for over 200 years. With a passion for quality and beautiful design, Denby pride them selves on the strength and exceptional craftsmanship of their pottery. The company still source their super strong clay from the original location, behind their Derbyshire factory, as they did centuries ago. With time-honoured skills and traditions, the potters turn the clay into the iconic Denby pieces that we know and love.
For generations back, artists in Derbyshire became pottery pioneers when they used their skills to turn strong clay into the famous Denby collections we love today. Denby are proud that their skills and attention to detail are still very much alive. They now have over 5000 glazes and a growing range of distinctive colours, shapes and patterns – all hand finished, so no piece is ever exactly the same. In fact, only after being passed through 25 pairs of hands is each piece then awarded the Denby seal of approval.
Today Denby continue to go from strength to strength, crafting timeless collections that exude English heritage and seeking out current trends to create modern ones.
