Owners of Native, Imogen and Ivan were looking to source tableware after settling in to their new restaurant site in Southwark Street, London.
Native’s focus is to provide guests with the UK’s finest wild food; offering the country’s best foraged foods and game. The tableware had to keep up with the demand of an ever-changing menu as well as complement the restaurants décor. It was essential to Imogen and Ivan that the crockery was UK made crockery to fit in with the values of the restaurant.
During a visit in November 2018, Imogen and Ivan selected a range of eight shapes, both regular and irregular designs were chosen; It was important to have symmetry for the table settings but more natural, organic shapes to complement the food. A combination of coloured glazes were chosen from earthy green tones in Jasper and Green Verdigris to the clean, bright lines of Soho. Samples and a tailored pricelist were taken away and a few days later an order was placed.
Codes 63SM, 224LG, 249, 557, 814, 831, 832 and HR8. Glazes Green Verdigris, Jasper, Nirvana, Soho and Delhi Black.
The resulting tableware looks fantastic in the restaurant and we look forward to working with the team from Native again in the future.
