The Story

Modern and restrained in form, expressive and rustic in glaze. The artisan's hand is authentically reproduced in this stoneware pattern designed exclusively for Crate and Barrel by ceramic artist and designer Kathy Erteman at her 18th Street studio in New York City. A contemporary matte black exterior contrasts the rustic beauty of a shiny, speckled white glazed interior ringed with the subtly raised spiral associated with hand-thrown pieces. A raised clay rim features a sandy glaze that evokes the feel of exposed terra cotta. To capture the artisan look of this dinnerware, Erteman modeled prototypes to true scale by hand with her original glazes as reference for production. In the words of the designer, "When making tableware, I consider design and the rigors of daily use. The spirit of my hand in these pieces is modest, to harmonize with and act as a support to the prepared ingredients."

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unable to Match for Replacements We bought a complete set of this dinnerware less than 2 years ago. We recently needed to replace one of the plates and when we brought the replacement home we found that the design had been tweaked slightly, with the new dinner plate being noticeably larger than the old one. We returned it and now are unable to properly complete our set. This is very frustrating. What is the point of having continuously produced patterns if they are not going to remain truly consistent?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not durable! Chips easily! I purchased a set of 16 of these dishes just 3 months ago - I liked the more simple, clean look of them, but was disappointed how easily/quickly they chipped. I do use them every day, but generally I am pretty careful handling my dishes. I am going back to Denby!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from beautiful, but chips easily we loved the neutral tone of these, but they are not durable at all. they chip very easily. I have only had for a couple of months and almost every plate is chipped. disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but doesn't do well in the microwave Beautiful set. I was skeptical about the shape of the bowls but they are fine with liquids. They arrived with 2 broken items but c&b replaced them quickly. Since then I have had 1 dish chip when I accidentally hit it on the counter, that's the only chip since I've has the dishes for a year. The only issue is that when you put then in the microwave the dishes become very hot but the food isn't...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Collection, Great Value After searching for dinnerware that looked handcrafted, yet refined, this collection was a winner. Online photos do not do justice for how beautiful they are in person. They may be slightly more fragile than anticpated, but agreat value in comparison to similar styles from other high-end competitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Looks I bought these dishes a couple months ago and they've held up well. I hand wash my dishes because of other reviews about chipping. They look great and they're a good size. Be careful when stacking bowls in cabinet because they could easily scratch or chip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great conversation piece! We have received several compliments on our dinnerware! Great for everyday use as well as a nicer occassion. I am not giving it a 5-star only b/c it chips pretty easily, could be user error though :). I would recommend this to any first time home shoppers to existing home owners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from really sleek and modern, but also quite large We registered for these for our wedding and are pretty happy with them. They're easy to clean, look really classy, and its nice to have a matching set. The only issue I can find is that the bowls are really wide so they're not ideal for some kinds of soups or cereal or anything. They are, however, great as serving bowls for our nightly dinners. One of the plates came slightly chipped and I called C&B Customer service and they sent a brand new one, no questions asked, within a week. Incredible customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Set! Bought this set 2 months ago and love it! Has been washed multiple times in the dishwasher with no scratching or fading of the black underside of the dishes. Am able to stack 4 bowls with some care. Love the look of the dishes and the shape of the mugs! Totally satisfied with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice dinnerware We registered for this dinnerware set of 4 place settings for our shower (2 years ago) and have used it daily since then. Dinnerware has held up well in the dishwasher and in the microwave. In May 2014, we ordered another set of 4 place settings, to complete our set. Looks like they may have added additional glaze to the outside of the dishes, so it does look a tad glossier than the first set, but we still love the set

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding quality I have had this complete set for almost a year. It's durable and beautiful!! I always get complements.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dinnerware But Chips! I just purchased 12 place settings of this beautiful stoneware. I was unboxing it all and putting it into my cabinet, knocked one dinner plate on the side of another, and the rimmed chipped! So disappointed, the stoneware will not be durable, I'm returning it all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strangely delicate I received a set of four place settings for my birthday in January. I love the look of them. I love the texture and the color. It makes a stunning place setting. The only problem is that the dinner plates keep getting chipped in the dishwasher. The first time I assumed it was just bad luck and ordered a few more dinner plates, thinking I'd replace the chipped one and have two extra so we could serve six. Today two more plates came out chipped. Now I know what you're thinking... it's not the plate, it's the dishwasher. But I have had this dishwasher for four years and in that time, only one other bowl chipped. I think the problem lies in the design of the plate which has a slightly up-turned lip that seems to catch on things.Apart from the chipping problem, I love this set, I really do - and that's why I feel really, really sad. I haven't experienced any of the problems with scratches others have described and the pieces without the lip seem fine.On balance I would recommend this set with reservations. It might be best to hand wash the dinner plates. I may have to do this because replacing the plates every time is getting expensive. The set seems to robust otherwise it would have never occurred to me that I'd need to give them any special care, but there you are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look! I got this set as a wedding gift, and I love the look. The mugs are wonderful, and the plates are nice and large. The bowls are very shallow, which was a little weird at first. But, now that I have used them a few times, I have found that I really like them. I would highly recommend this collection for everyday use!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets compliments from my guests! I purchased this set last year ... I liked the style (my mom had heathware, and I always liked those) ... and in part due to the reviews I saw posted.Pros:- the look is simple, but yet there's some complexity to the style with the rings/ridge on the plates.- I love the mugs, not too heavyCons:- Not a lot of serveware; There are 3 total (small bowl, large bowl and large platter).- they are big, and as a result, heavy- During shipment; pieces were broken;- Quality of finish is not consistent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique everyday dishes We registered for these dishes and really love the way they look, traditional but modern at the same time. The only complaint I have is that they are a bit fragile. A few of the dinner plates arrived to us broken and needed to be exchanged. And I chipped the corner off of a plate when I bumped it on the kitchen counter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for everyday dinnerware This dinnerware set has been great for my family. The plates have wide bases so they do not tip over when trying to cut meats of sorts. The only thing that I think many may have a problem with is the lack of uniformity. Each individual piece seems to have its own uniqueness, good and bad flaws. Some of the pieces aren't fully painted, some of the plates have curves in them. For the amount of money I spent I would expect a little more, everything finished perfectly. However, I try to see each piece as its own, with its unique flaws. lol. As for other reviews saying the plates, bowls get scratches, I have a toddler who oftens uses these items and not once have I seen any scratches. I dish wash and hand wash these and so far so good. The bowl shape's uniqueness can cause some people some issues with loading in the dishwasher, but I am lucky enough to have a really old dishwasher that allows the bowls to lay down at an angle just fine! Overall, I am happy with my purchase and am still looking forward to using them in the oven for a sizzling fajita dinner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful stoneware but not for long. I bought a ten piece set of this style for over $400.  The quality, shape and beauty of this dinnerware exceeded my expectations and was just what I was looking for, BUT... after only one week I was beginning to see scratches in the dark, outer finish.  Almost everything this dinnerware touches (silverware, other dishes, fingernails, etc.) leaves a whitish, silvery mark on the dark, matte finish that does not rub or wash off.  I tried hand washing only (in order to avoid the dishes coming into contact with other items while in the dishwasher) but it became clear very quickly that that was not a realistic solution. And, they were still getting scratched anyway when they inevitably would touch one another while putting them away in the cabinet.  Within two weeks of use the outsides of the bowls and cups were so well covered in marks that the beauty was significantly diminished.  They look like someone took a piece of white chalk and drew all over them.  I am so disappointed.  They were perfect for me, but only for a little while.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simplistic Dinnerware Set I recently purchased this dinner set along with the serving bowls - they're simplistic in design for everyday use yet elegant enough for entertaining guests!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 18th Street We purchased 8 place settings of this dinnerware and are very happy with the appearance. Based on looks alone I would rate it a 5.I give this product 3 stars for the following reasons:We had to exchange a few items in the store due to manufacturing flaws (uneven glaze, warped mugs)The glaze on the outside of one bowl cracked after being microwaved (requiring another trip to the not-so-close store) and now I am worried about microwaving these dishes - something you should not have to stress about with everyday dinnerware.When I do use them in the microwave they get VERY hot - have pot holders or a towel ready.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Perfect Really. 18th Street is positively perfect. We are a very persnickety bunch when it comes to design and finding something we all like is quite a feat.I love the heft of the plates. The bowls are perfect for oatmeal, salads and pasta. I could go on for days on end about the mugs.We cannot think of any purchase in recent memory that has pleased us this much. If you are on the fence, hop off and get this dinnerware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best looking set I love the outer dark surface, with the inside kept light- so the food looks appetizing, and it is better suited to day to day meals. Best looking set of tableware in a long time. I like the handmade feel of this tableware, it gives the table setting a warmth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dinnerware for everyday The dinnerware fits the description on the website perfectly, and they were what i expected for the most part. There were just a few things that became evident after we received them and used them - not necessarily bad, but different. The bowls are not typical shape and so they feel little shallow for daily use such as cereal. The dishes are sturdy, but the also feel heavy when having to lift them into cabinets. The outer flat color seems to scuff easily. I didn't realize the inner dish would have such evident grooves...it gives it appearance of rustic.Also, I ordered two extra dinner plates and bowls separate from the 16 piece set and those were received broken. The service desk was very pleasant to work with and replaced them immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful dinnerware I'm totally happy with the dinnerware set. I'm going to buy a serving plate too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty enough for special occasions I purchased this set about 6 months ago to use for dinner parties and special occasions. It is unassuming enough though to be used on a daily basis as well though.The only potential hesitation that I might cite is the shape of the bowl which is perfect for soup or pasta but too wide and shallow to be used on a daily basis for things like cereal, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning presentation The dinnerware makes for a stunning tablescape. The matte dark gray finish and the creamy texture on the face of the plates and bowls are very complementary to a myriad of ways to decorate the table. Once the dishes arrived, I bought black, cream, and terra cotta linens to match. Very nice! Love the neutral look.The raised swirls and the design is very effective. I wondered if the raised pattern would interfere with cutting food but it is not an issue at all. The bowls that are part of the set are perfect for salads and soups, even for small side dishes. Nice shape! I ordered the platter and the large and small serving bowls as well. It would be nice if the designer could add a smaller bowl for individual servings.Years and years ago I had purchased the white cafe ware from Crate and Barrel. The dishes lasted for years and I passed them on to a family member. Given my satisfaction with my last C& B dinnerware Ifigured I wouldn't be disappointed with a new purchase and I was right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny This is my first purchase with C&B, and I am very satisfied with the timliness of delivery and quality of the product. This dishware fits the description perfectly. It is. Happy merger between modern and rustic, light and dark. Of all the sets this one is by far the most attractive set I've seen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great set, well priced... Love the fit and finishes and the convenience of this dinnerware. Dinner plate size is particularly appreciated by my family, as our last plates were square and huge. Soup bowls are a bit tough to load properly in the dishwasher, and their width allows food to cool a bit too fast, if food is hot, of course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just my style I was looking for a relaxed modern look for my newly decorated home. Saw this product in the most recent Crate and Barrel catalog. Checked it out at the store and liked it so much I bought 4 place settings with all the serving pieces. Set on black placemats, black napkins with silver napkin rings and clear crystal, makes a fabulously sophisticated table. I loved it so much I went back to the store and bought another four place settings. Got many compliments from my guests.Thank you Create and Barrel!
