A closer look at Bowsley

A few decades ago, dinner plates were about 23cm wide. Then came wine bars and bistro food, and much bigger, 30cm plates called ‘bistro’ size. Bowsley dinner plates are bistro size. They give you the space to present food beautifully. And they work well as ‘chargers’ (or under-plates) too.

Just so you know

Our tableware is packed and sold in convenient sets online, and individually at our stores. So if you need more than 6 place-settings, or if something gets broken, you can make up the numbers easily without having to buy another whole set.

The materials

Bowsley is made from stoneware which is extremely strong and hardwearing. You can stack it in the cupboards, and put it in the dishwasher, and even the microwave, and not have to worry about it chipping easily. It’s everything you want from everyday crockery.

The making process

We wanted Bowsley to feel hand-made. So although each piece is cast in a mould, the moulds themselves are made by hand in a slightly irregular shape. One bowl might be a touch smaller than another; a plate won’t be a perfect circle.

Design details

The slightly irregular ridges, raised dots and ripples all give Bowsley a rustic texture that reminds you it’s been crafted, not just made. Then touches of grey glaze are added by hand, to give the soft white pieces their distressed look.

Care guide

You can put Bowsley in the dishwasher and the microwave but not the oven. The extra-large dinner plates and pasta bowls may not fit in your particular dishwasher. But we think they’re well-worth the trouble of hand-washing-up.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.

Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
