New Castle, PA (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
Steelite International, a world leading supplier of tabletop products to the hospitality industry proudly debuts the award winning Craft tableware collection. A Steelite Performance collection, Craft is covered under the Steelite International Lifetime Edge Chip Warranty program.
Recently presented with the 2012 Starchefs.com International Chefs Congress “Tabletop Innovator Award,” the all new Craft collection was inspired by hand-crafted, simple country wares made by generations of potters over hundreds of years – While still offering the same exceptional durability Steelite is known for.
The range embodies the beauty of rich, lustrous glazes applied by hand, and celebrates chance effects & reactions which occur naturally in the kiln. The gem-like glazes married to simple forms and shapes produce a unique and individual appearance, giving Craft a rustic “joie de vivre.”
Explaining design influence for the new range, Andrew Klimecki, Head of Design and Product Innovation for Steelite International says "We took inspiration from the local area and the simply country wares made by generations of potters. Craft provides a simple but distinctive platform for the chef to display their creative flair and skill."
The 43 piece range is available in four vibrant hues - Blue, Green, Brown and Terracotta. Craft will be featured at the November 11-13 International Hotel, Motel & Restaurant Show in New York City – Steelite International Booth #1907.
