Lockhart Catering Equipment has launched its new Artisan range of restaurant tableware.

Created in partnership with tableware designer Julian Dowson, this rustic range has what is said to be a hand-thrown studio pottery feel.

Designed to combine a handcrafted look with strength and consistency for a commercial environment, Lockhart says Artisan is manufactured using the latest processes in order to produce beautiful, practical and durable tableware.

Benefitting from a lifetime edge chip warranty, the range has been designed to stack on its rims, be resistant to scratching and suitable for use in commercial dishwashers.

It should also retain heat, keeping food at the optimum temperature for longer.

Every piece in the collection is made using 100% European raw materials, before it is diamond foot polished and performance tested.

The complete Artisan collection is made up of three smaller collections, with shapes and sizes claimed to suit both casual and more formal service occasions.

The Pebble collection has a grey, semi-matte surface, plus lighter coloured and small pieces.

Secondly, the Coast collection is designed for more relaxed, informal dining occasions. It has a semi-matte background combined with contrasting edge banding and subtle splashes of white.

Lastly, the Crème collection combines a range of textures and shapes in an ivory colour.

Crème pieces can pair with those from the Pebble and Coast collections for larger food displays, and can also match with Lockhart’s wider Crème tableware brand.
