Denby is a traditional UK pottery. It has been producing stoneware and china for over 200 years, and it is one of the stalwarts of British design. As well as antique collectors' items, which can cost many thousands of pounds, you can also enjoy this traditional pottery style with new and improved dinnerware items from the latest lines. Their products are not only designed to look great, but have also been created for regular, everyday use.
Unique and striking glazes help set Denby Pottery apart. Denby Halo dinnerware utilises a two-tone glaze. Both the glazes are applied before the piece is fired, and they combine in order to give the two tone, gradient effect. Made from stoneware clay, these pieces will last for years to come and they will retain their great looks throughout their life.
Denby has been producing appealing and functional pottery and stoneware for more than 200 years. Their first products were functional items; used as pill bottles and for holding liquids like ginger beer and water. By the 1920s, their kitchenware and decorative ranges had become the primary focus.
The 2nd World War halted production of all but one of Denby's lines. The Utility Brown range was the only range of products the company could make following manufacturing constraints and a lack of availability of coloured stains. The Utility Brown line was used by the armed forces to hold tea and rum rations.
After the war, the company quickly picked up the pace again. Several designs became best sellers and the Denby marque because one of the best known and bestselling tableware companies.
Investment in modern technology has helped the firm to further cement its position as one of the leading tableware manufacturers in the country. Despite the firm no longer being family owned, it has retained its values of producing high quality and stunningly designed, handmade tableware and stoneware. It remains one of the most prominent ceramic manufacturers in the UK, and continues to excite homeware and giftware buyers.
While the Denby Halo range is a relatively new introduction, first produced in 2010, it utilises the same techniques and materials, and offers the same high quality as all Denby products from past decades. Two different tones of glaze are applied during the kilning stage. These are fused together as the stoneware heats, and it is this process that gives Halo dinnerware its unique and attractive design.
All Denby Halo dinner set items, including mugs and teapots, are made using this same technique and they rely on locally sourced clay. They are truly handmade, are designed to look great on the table as well as stunning on display, and the Denby Halo range is only one of a huge selection of Denby dinnerware and pottery lines.
The speckled finish gives the Denby Halo set a striking and popular design. The fact that the pieces can be used in the microwave, the oven, the dishwasher, and the fridge, means that these are extremely practical as well as being attractively designed.
