TOLEDO, OHIO, April 12, 2016 – With the launch of the Artisan collection from the Be Social™ line, Libbey® continues to expand the company’s offering of tabletop and houseware essentials. Libbey recognizes the growing population of home entertainers and the Artisan collection is an on-trend response to their entertaining demands.
“When we study today’s market, we’re seeing so much of this artisan look – perfectly imperfect,” said Serena Williams, senior manager of retail channel marketing for Libbey Inc. “This unique bakeware and serveware collection was designed to capture the look and feel of handmade ceramics. The blue reactive glaze used in the collection gives it that artisanal appearance that is trend-right and sought after by today’s home entertaining consumer.”
Items in the Artisan collection include a square baker, loaf baker, lasagna pan, pie dish, and serving bowls and platters. All pieces are dishwasher, oven and microwave safe. Artisan showcases a handcrafted design featuring a cream base with a marbleized blue glaze around the edging, creating uniqueness in every piece.
“We believe these pieces will be a hit with consumers, especially our social media users, as the collection is ideal for showcasing food. We want these pieces to make a lasting impression for home entertainers, and for their followers. Their food photos will truly be one of a kind,” said Williams.
Be Social from Libbey is a collection of premium tabletop products designed to enhance the experience of everyday and casual entertaining.
