The Homer Laughlin China Company is now offering the expansion of the Pesto/Indigo line with additional pieces and the introduction of the new Sepia color. Sepia/Pesto/Indigo is a
hearty mix of al- most 30 items in unique shapes and sizes, such as squares, triangles, rectangles, and crescents. Each distressed, rustic piece spurs con- versation and
makes sharing small bites feel like a fam- ily gathering. “We have dedicated lovers of the Pesto/Indigo style, so expanding that type of glaze application to other pieces really made sense,” said Katie Bricker, foodservice and general market-
ing manager for HLC.
“With the added shapes
and sizes, setting a
unique and memorable
tabletop is easier than
ever. The new Sepia color
is a natural fit to join the
collection, rounding out
the homestyle feel with
additional warmth and depth.” The Homer Laughlin China Company (HLC Inc.), founded in 1871, is the largest do- mestic tableware manufacturer in the United States, employing over 800 skilled craftsmen in a 37-acre facility. Call 800.452.4462 or visit for all ordering details.
