OUR TABLETOP ARTISANS
Growing up in the South, sisters Susan and Frances Gravely knew entertaining was a way of life. A trip to the small town of Vietri Sul Mare on the enchanting Amalfi coast introduced them to the essence of the Italian entertaining lifestyle: handcrafted mix and match dinnerware. While in Italy, they met with the local artisans and returned with the idea to create their own collection that complements the American lifestyle and celebrates a love of life, people, nature, and good living.
The unique white ceramic tabletop and handmade serving pieces by Montes Doggett have been featured in House Beautiful or on the Food Network. High quality clay is shaped and fired for durability and is lead-free, microwaveable, dishwasher safe and can be warmed in the oven. The collection is developed with intentional imperfections on traditional shapes- adding character that creates memories, the inspiration behind designer Monica’s vision.
Featuring nature-inspired colors and forms, this husband-wife team produces handmade ceramics from a studio on their olive orchard in northern California, nothing is imported during the process so the collection is fully made in the USA. The juxtaposition of strength and organic grace of the collection is reflected by variations in the glaze, minimal asymmetrical forms and conceptual ideas, maintaining a clean and modern form. Each handcrafted piece is lead-free and appliance safe.
We are purveyors of neutral tones, so when it comes to the dishware, the color comes mainly from the food and botanicals featured as centerpieces, or the other accents chosen for the table. Once you select the dishes for your foundation, add texture with luxurious linen napkins, and finish it off with wooden serving pieces, metal serving utensils and unique glassware.
