The Beatriz Ball Collection began in 1991, when designer Beatriz Ball began working hand-in-hand with skilled metalware artisans in Mexico City. The beautiful, handcrafted pieces in this first collection took the world of metalware by storm. Made of 100% recycled aluminum, Beatriz Ball never tarnishes and can go from the freezer to a 350º oven. This metalware will not lose its shine, and is easy to clean with soap and water.
Each Beatriz Ball piece is painstakingly crafted using the ancient art of sand casting. During this process, a premium quality alloy of molten aluminum is poured into molds before passing through four levels of polishing. Prior to completion, each piece passes through at least twelve hands. The result: metalware infused with a depth of character, warmth and personality one only finds in that which is handcrafted.
Bill Campbell Porcelain
Vibrant and colorful, no two Bill Campbell ceramics are the same. It was more than 40 years ago that Bill and his wife, Jane, took their artistic eyes and passion and turned them into art you can use every day. What originally had been a small Pennsylvania art studio has now grown to a supplier of more than 500 national galleries. Eighteen skilled employees assure quality and attention to detail is not sacrificed. Each piece is truly unique as variations in glaze application, placement in the kiln and kiln temperatures cause each piece to develop its own rich colors and patterns, something you only find with one-of-a-kind handmade pottery pieces.
Jason Silverman Ceramics
From age 19, at his first pottery class, Jason Silverman knew he had found his life’s calling. A Rhode Island School of Design graduate and skilled potter, Jason Silverman used his artistic eye to create a fine pottery line. Jason Silverman’s pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe, and are all handmade in the United States with vibrant colors. Many dishes and bowls have a signature swirl in the middle, and no two pieces are exactly the same. Ceramic bowls, vases, plates and more . . .

America’s single major manufacturer of bone china, Lenox was born in 1889 in a small art studio with 18 employees in Trenton, NJ.

Still proudly made in the United States, Lenox has grown to manufacture crystal, flatware, giftware and home décor in addition to fine china. The first company to develop a bridal registry, Lenox has been a popular gift for weddings and bridal showers for decades.
