The Hound House Heritage Collection
For Collin and I, entertaining is all about creating memorable experiences for our guests and we make sure that no detail is overlooked. When we are traveling, or shopping at some of our favorite spots in Connecticut, we're always keeping our eyes open for special serving pieces. As we talked about some items we may offer in our Hound House Lifestyle collection, we dreamt of creating a signature collection of pieces that we would love to use when hosting any kind of gathering. Of course, part of our vision for Hound House is to collaborate with people in our community on a bespoke collection of lifestyle products. So, when a Connecticut potter reached out to us on Instagram, we knew immediately that we might be able to achieve both of those goals. The Hound House Heritage Collection is the result of working together to create the kinds of pieces we are always searching for.
All of the pieces are hand-made right here in Connecticut and have unique Hound House touches. The Hound House Signature glaze is stunning--we can't stop looking at it! People who have seen the collection often mistake the pieces for pewter and they are pleasantly surprised when they learn that it is pottery. We wanted the serving pieces to feel like they are heirlooms (and hopefully they will become just that) so this finish helps to achieve the patina that we love so much. The hand-carved trim on every piece is one of those perfect imperfections that we adore and it keeps it from feeling too precious. Each piece has a beautiful well-loved, well-worn look that invokes stories of generations past which is exactly what we were going for.
Faux bois makes us swoon and we wanted this platter to stand out in a matte black glaze and a hand-created pattern. You may already know how important it is to us to mix in natural elements into our rooms and this piece represents that aspect of Hound House. Each faux bois platter is one-of-a-kind and can be used in a variety of ways--from a bedside tray to a serving piece for appetizers and desserts.
We really couldn't be more proud of how the collection is evolving and we are looking forward to adding more pieces soon.
Our Signature candle vessel will be ready to make its debut by the end of this week!
