Today, a line of pottery I knew nothing about until a few days ago. One of the blogs I read regularly is a great Australian blog called "The Rameking" - as the name suggest all about one of my favourite items in pottery - the ramekin. The blog is incredibly well researched and full of information on these fascinating pieces of culinary history.
This week on The Rameking was a post on Denby Galaware, which led me to look around more about this dinnerware line I hadn't heard of.
Galaware was a line originally produced in the 1950s - designed partly by Frederick Cooper and partly by Tibor Reich. It was to be sold exclusively through T. Eaton & Co in Canada, but it seems to have been sold in Australia and New Zealand as well in small quantities. It was stamped Galaware without the Denby logo.
I was able to find a few images of pieces from the range on the net, which has very modernist organic forms and solid colour.
The first luxuriously red design is from China Search UK where there are a few Galaware items for sale, and the second from THIS Etsy store in Canada
If you have any Galaware, I'd love to see a picture of it on the Facebook page for the blog ....
