Introducing Artisan - Rustic Tableware with Refined Practicality

Posted on Tuesday 02 August 2016

Perfectly crafted to show your culinary creations at their best, our stunning new Artisan range of restaurant tableware brings together unique colours, textures and shapes to display your food at its very best. Elevating the way your customers experience the flavours on the plate, Artisan is an exciting new addition to our ever-growing range of brands that are exclusive to us at Lockhart Catering Equipment.

Created in partnership with the esteemed tableware designer Julian Dowson, this rustic range has a subtle, hand-thrown studio pottery feel. Designed to combine a handcrafted look with strength and consistency for a commercial environment, Artisan is manufactured using the latest world-class processes in order to produce beautiful, practical and durable tableware that stands up to the demands of your business.

A studio-finished feel, with the finest foodservice quality

The appearance of Artisan tableware unmistakeably hints at a unique pottery studio finish, however, this contemporary range excels in its practicality for your service space. Benefitting from our Lifetime Edge Chip Warranty, the range has been designed to stack on its rims, is highly resistant to scratching and is suitable for use in commercial dishwashers. It has also been specially designed to retain heat, keeping your food at the optimum temperature for longer.

To achieve a reliably consistent finish that incorporates colours which are perfect for eye-catching food presentation, every piece in the Artisan collection is made using 100% European raw materials, before it is diamond foot polished and tested to a high level of performance.

Three collections to suit your unique style

The complete Artisan collection is made up of three smaller collections, each of which is striking enough in design to be used as a versatile standalone range, with shapes and sizes to suit both casual and more formal service occasions. In addition, our existing Crème tableware collection complements and coordinates with our Crème collection within our Artisan tableware brand for your convenience.

The cool, grey, semi-matte surface of our calming Pebble tableware collection makes your food sing by providing a simple yet stunning food presentation backdrop. With lighter coloured pieces that provide extra contrast on your table when serving up a series of plates at once, and small pieces that elevate the impact of canapés, starters or side dishes, Pebble is a subtle collection that lets your creativity stand out.

Our charming Coast collection channels understated elegance for more relaxed, informal dining occasions. It’s the perfect complement to seasonal and rustic menus, truly enhancing the food presented on it. A semi-matte background combined with contrasting edge banding and subtle splashes of white give it an impressive pottery studio finished feel.

Sometimes only a beautiful blank canvas will do, and while each piece of the Crème collection combines a range of textures and shapes, the balanced ivory colour makes it the perfect backdrop for your most colourful dishes. Crème pieces pair wonderfully with those from our Pebble and Coast collections for larger food displays, and also matches perfectly with our wider Crème tableware brand, giving your flawless food displays a rustic edge.

We’re exceptionally proud of all of our exclusive tableware and glassware collections here at Lockhart, which offer you the finest quality tableware at delightfully affordable prices.
