Handcrafted by Bendigo Pottery
Melbourne designer & ceramicist, Glenn Tebble, has designed a beautiful, carefully considered range of organic style, modern, ceramic plates & bowls for food service as well as home kitchens.
GTH is a small, independent concern - each piece designed by Glenn is handcrafted by Bendigo Pottery, an old-school pottery 150km north-west of Melbourne (established over 150 years ago during the Victorian gold rush - a pottery of international repute, with the world’s largest collection of old wood fired kilns, having handcrafted stone wares throughout nearly two centuries).
