The Harvest Story

The Harvest Story features this popular collection throughout its production, showing the skill and care that goes into each and every piece.

Today’s dining styles reflect chefs’ passion for embracing local ingredients and the ‘farm-to-table’ philosophy behind many provenance styled menus.

Harvest has been specifically designed to echo this recent trend in food culture. Here, we show you the skill and care that goes into making every piece.

Quality checks: Every Harvest item, in fact every item Dudson manufactures, is hand checked to ensure it meets the exacting criteria needed to carry the Dudson backstamp.

Authenticity is not only the word of the day in restaurant kitchens; it is reflected in the hand-crafted look of Harvest, from its inspiration in the origins of ceramics, to the unique qualities of each and every piece.
