LOVE the Haand pottery Ripple Collection! I have purchased several pieces in the matte white and matte black and I plan to add pieces to my collection. Specifically, I have purchased: Ten 5-pc dinner settings, the coordinating breakfast bowls, dessert bowls, small pasta bowls and several serving pieces: 20 oz. pitchers, 18" oval platter, 13" oval platter, Ripple Line presentation platter, wide serving bowls and the fruit bowl. Several years ago, I was introduced to Haand while dining at a Raleigh, NC restaurant. The owner told me the story of Haand and I immediately was intrigued and made a mental note to purchase some for myself. What do I like about Haand pottery? The sleek, organic and clean design aligned with my design sensibility. Haand pottery is handmade--not a production line item and that appealed to me as well. I was attracted to Haand being a U.S. company--founded in North Carolina with headquarters and studio located in Burlington, NC. It employs pottery artisans, craftspeople and an attentive team of customer care professionals. I was impressed with Haand's popularity amongst American restaurateurs. If top chefs select Haand--that is a creditable, solid endorsement. I have had the pleasure of visiting the Haand studio in Burlington--where I purchased my first pieces of the Ripple collection. From the moment I entered the showroom, it was apparent that everyone I meet and spoke with took great pride in the company. They were proud being a part of the Haand team of customer-focused professionals that represented special handmade, high-quality pottery. Purchasing Haand pottery is a feel-good experience--beautiful pottery sold by exceptional, caring professionals. If you are looking for a contemporary design with versatility (dress it up or dress it down) and is practical (microwave safe)...I would highly recommend Haand. And, if you have an opportunity to visit the studio, please tell them hi from Babs in Raleigh.
I love the organic design and matt finish. Because it is porcelain it is more durable and I except it to hold up well. I will certainly add more pieces to my collection.
The pottery (3 piece table setting is striking on the table and adds a modern feel to the room
I started receiving ads for Haand when I moved to Florida and took a couple of classes at a pottery shop in Flagler County. Loved how the dishes looked so organic, and useful for everyday at the same time. Figured I would check them out when I went back to the pottery shop; however, when I finally ordered, I found that they are actually made about an hour from where we lived in North Carolina before we moved. My husband had been complaining about the mishmash of dishes we had, so I placed the order and once received removed all the old dishes in the cupboard and replaced them with the Ripple set. He reached in and was instantly impressed with the workmanship and feel of the plates. I think they make cooking taste better too! Thank you!
I had seen Haand pottery before I bought the four dinner settings and wanted to own some pieces. These dishes did not disappoint. The glazes are gorgeous, the dishes are beautifully produced and uniquely styled. I will be adding to my collection as time goes on.
