Le Souk – Fall Patterns
posted on September 8th, 2015 by Kim Kaczor-Wardlow
At the beginning of summer, we proudly introduced Le Souk – the beautiful hand-crafted line of table and serveware imported to Bristol Farms from Tunisia. In case you missed it, you can read it here. It’s worth a revisit even for those that did – the video of the artists’ craft on each one of these pieces is simply astonishing.
Now on to the fun stuff – I am so excited to bring you new patterns from Le Souk for this holiday season! This fall, enjoy the fresh look of Le Souk’s beautiful hand-painted ceramics with accents of olive wood serving spoons, spatulas, and more (also from Le Souk). This combination is a lovely way to set the table for a warm fall dinner with family, or to entertain during the fall season. We love the feel of Mediterranean influence and the rich, warm combination with the wood.
Le Souk’s fall options are available in the following patterns:
Honey is Le Souk’s flagship pattern. It’s the only pattern they have continued to paint since the start of Le Souk Ceramique in 1997, and it shows no sign of losing its popularity. The rich semi-transparent Honey glaze covers accents of green, red, and yellow set inside the black outlines and black edgework. Set atop black linens or a dark wood table, Honey really makes for a stunning place-setting. Mix this with the olive wood serveware, and you have a complete setting at your table.
Le Souk has created a design more reminiscent of Tuscany. With the centuries of interaction between Italy and Tunisia, they were seeking to draw out the common ground between the two shores of the Mediterranean. They are painting Salvena on white clay bisques and covering each piece with a lightly tinted glaze, giving each piece a soothing hue to coincide with the lighter shades they use for the blues, greens, yellows and browns. Salvena will mix in nicely with the new repertoire of olive wood shapes.
