Benday Cobalt Bread Plate
Bread plate made of fine bone china. A new spin on a traditional craft, The New English has taken the chance to protect a diminishing skill from a pool of craftsman to produce fine bone china with a contemporary twist. The pattern shown here, Benday, is an homage to the dot; its beauty, simplicity, and above all else, its importance in our lives. The humble dot – unsung hero of the 20th and 21st centuries; the foundation of our televisions, the basis of our newsprint, the means by which the first printers brought our computer generated words and ideas to life. Indeed, the medium through which artists such as Lichtenstein shaped our thinking and understanding of image and expression. These products are made in a traditional batch production method in Stoke On Trent, where much of the traditional fine English china is produced. Manufactured by The New English.
