I never thought I would ever be taking pictures of dish sets.  But these are sooo gorgeous, I just had too.  It has been about 1 1/2 years of searching for a beautiful, everyday, set of dishes.  I knew I wanted Stoneware, particularly after years of using other dish sets that easily chipped or broke.  In my search, I found many lovely sets, but given the expense, I did not want to just like them, I had to love them.  And love them I do!
It is hard to tell from this picture, but the dishes have a "crackled" glaze, which they term as "reactive glazing" and the outer edge is a dark brown, that appears more like pottery- they are heavy, and solid feeling.
The salad side plates are a bit larger than most, which I love, and the bowls are deep and rounded - love that too!  I did not photograph the coffee mugs, but they too feel solid and comfortable.  I am not sure how well these will photograph food, but I thought I could always buy a few cheaper white dishes for photos.  And guess what?  After searching many top quality brand names and stores - I found these at Costco of all places! Actually, I had stopped looking for dishes all together because I just could not find any I loved.  Funny how that works out.  Oh, and they also had a lovely turquoise/blue colored set as well. Sure glad I had stopped looking for dishes!  What makes you happy in the kitchen?
