We are thrilled to announced that the Kelling Collection has won the Innovation Award at the Tableware International Awards of Excellence 2022.
As a new business we are over the moon to receive this recognition for our first collection of bone china tableware.
The design was the dream of Emma Deterding of Kelling Designs who wanted a range of tableware that was as practical as it was beautiful, swapping out traditional gold banding for dishwasher-safe contrast colour banding.
To achieve this design we silk screen printed both colours on a decal, which is hand applied to the bone china whiteware, before over-painting a matching banding colour to achieve a 'rolled edge' when you can see the colour from the side as well as on top. Due to the combination of decal and hand-painting, each pieces ends up being fired four times.
The end result is a stunning collection of bright and beautiful tableware that is incredibly practical for day-to-day living.
We are extremely proud of the collection and continue to receive rave reviews from customers across the world who love the colours as much as us.
The magazine received over 220 entries over 15 categories from the specialist tableware sector, and was judged by a prestigious international panel of experts.
We would like to congratulate all the other winners of the 2022 awards, and look forward to reading about them in the next issue of the magazine.
