To celebrate spring, CorningWare has launched two new colours inspired by Australians' love affair with coastal and country living.
With a colour palate spanning the deep earthy tones of the outback to the sparkling azure coast, CorningWare has developed key pieces that capture the essence of Aussie summer holidays.
The two colours introduced to the CorningWare Etch collection this spring are Blue Cornflower and Coral.
Designer of the new CorningWare range Tania Aldous said the warm coral colour was derived from the luminous underwater life of the Great Barrier Reef, while the blue, originally inspired from the iconic Classics CorningWare range, paid homage to the coastal blue palette of Australian artist Brett Whiteley.
"The new colours will be featured on CorningWare's Etch collection that up until now has consisted of baking, casserole and canape dishes," she said.
New to range this spring is a detailed pie plate and side dish.
"New modern shapes were a big part of the Etch spring collection and really contemporise the kitchenware brand," Ms Aldous said.
"I wanted to design versatile pieces that could be used for casual summer entertaining from chips and dips to barbecues. This casual dining is what I loved about my summers growing up in Australia."
With pastels and subtle muted colours set to be the trend this spring/summer season, the new CorningWare collection will complement any relaxed and tropical-inspired soft furnishings in kitchens and outdoor entertainment areas across the country.
The Etch hand-crafted stoneware collection is finished with a ridged, artisan detailing, while the vibrant Blue Cornflower and Coral exterior is perfectly balanced by a lustrous and sleek white interior.
"The new Etch collection is designed to offer a flexible number of pieces. Better still, it offers versatility and practicality as you can take it from freezer to oven to table and it's microwave and dishwasher safe too," Ms Aldous said.
