Care tips for ceramic tableware

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

If you like collecting signature ceramic tableware like Juliska, you need to know a few care tips that will make your collection last longer and its quality protected. Most ceramic pieces have unglazed underrims that can scratch the overrim of another plate when the plates are stacked for storage. So make sure to cover the underside of each plate with paper towel or a piece of fabric. Moreover, note that stacking creates the most weight for the bottom plates, which can result in breakage. To avoid this, stack similar items together; for plates, stack no more than ten in a column. Likewise, ceramics expand and contract when subjected to heat that can lead to crazing and cracks. So, avoid storing pieces in direct sunlight or near heat sources like a stove or backside of the refrigerator.

Simple but elegant

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:50:00 AM in Juliska (34)

You need not display dinnerware with intricate designs or opulent styles to impress your guests. In fact, sometimes, a subtle style bereft of detailed patterns works better, especially if used against a minimalist backdrop. Julika’s Berry & Thread collection is a good example. The lineup features myriad earth colors and basic shapes and accented by basic patterns, yet they exude elegance and subtle luxury. They are Juliska’s best-selling items, highlighting the fact that interior design is a matter of sublime taste more than lavish embellishments. You have a range of hues to choose from: whitewash, ice blue, cappuccino, pistachio green, and ruby, among others. Keep in mind that this Julika collection works best when your interior theme has a more contemporary appeal than an old world charm.

Bohemian luxury

Posted by Schiffman's at 3:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

Luxury dinnerware can be fun and bohemian with Juliska. The luxury home brand was started by Capucine and David Gooding in 2001 with a display of forty hip glasses. The company has since expanded to include  stoneware collections that feature clean lines and seamless surface, but it maintains the “perfect imperfect” signature. In fact, Capucine lends her free spirited artistry to a number of Juliska collections. Flowers bloom unabashedly, while butterflies circle around vines in a colorful play of happiness. Then there's the Firenze's feathery blast reminiscent of psychedelic imaginings. Likewise, Juliska keeps the earthy undertones of its ceramic materials, which create a romantic, if not nostalgic, air. Whether you are hosting important clients or having a fun cocktail night with friends at home, the Juliska collections are perfect for the task.

Serving Juliska

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:16:33 AM in Juliska (34)

Whether you’re hosting a small book club or the entire bowling team, Juliska has a collection of party servers and drinkware that can be conversation pieces on their own. Gathering & Grazing is actually a collection of collections, culled from different Juliska themes under one purpose: to serve parties. For example, the Berry and Thread Whitewash Deviled Egg Platter is perfect to serve finger foods while you sashay across the garden offering your secret little nuggets to wedding guests. The Whitewash Cheese Board and Knife Set, meanwhile, gives you a subtle excuse to impress a nosy guest who has the habit of checking someone else’s kitchen. You can also collect different Juliska themed glasswares to serve your visitors, including the handsome beer stein and margarita glass.

Possibly the Best

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

It would be a really tall order for someone to claim that they make the best kind or simply just be the best. But when you are in a neck to neck competition with those that truly are some of the bests, hey, you possibly are one of the best – if not the best. This is just true for Juliska as just one look at Juliska pieces can make a person think “What can possibly be more beautiful than this?” And then you might just see something more to your liking in another Juliska collection. This is how Juliska is near the top if not on it. By mixing tradition and innovation, Juliska creates pieces out of the imagination – each piece has a personality and even a story to tell. One can take pleasure in these pieces by feeling their touch or just by looking at them. You can always expect the possible best from one of the bests.

Rustic is Beautiful

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

It’s called the perfect imperfect. The uneven style, the rustic shades, the handpainted design; these are the signatures of The Juliska Ceramics Collection. It combines high-level, hand-modeled artistry with high-temperature firing to produce lightweight but durable ceramic pieces that are as much an adornment to tables as they are practical and functional for dining. The stoneware can be as simple as the whitewashed Berry & Thread Collection, featuring a deep matted hue and punctuated with tiny detailed flowery embellishments, or as complex as the Firenze. The design lends itself to an hypnotic peacock-inspired pattern, and its jagged edge adds a comfy feel reminiscent of Saturday afternoons at home. And why not? Juliska is inspired by family gatherings, a celebration of food and pleasant conversations under a European sun.

Home buddy

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:15 AM in Juliska (34)

Juliska goes beyond providing you with a beautiful set of dinner ware. When Capucine and David Gooding founded Juliska in 2001 to offer 40 Bohemian inspired glasses, they didn’t imagine the brand would transform into one of the most inspired thematic home brands in America. In essence, Juliska seems to put art in your dining set. Testament to this, Capucine Gooding releases her collection of artistically rendered floral theme that gives off a breezy garden reminiscent of a happy, easy life of the sixties. Flowers bloom unabashedly. Butterflies play around twirling vines, attracted to the playful colors of the bloom. The hues are earthy, providing an undertone appeal to the set. The Capucine collection continues to make Juliska a romantic and nostalgic brand for American homes.

It’s that time of year again when the smell of burning leaves overpowers the coolness – a respite from the summer heat, the crunchy sound the colorful leaves make when you walk through them, or their mesmerizing twirling and whirling when they start to fall from the tree, the long walk with a nice drink while snuggling with a loved-one, and of course, the visible air coming out of one’s mouth.

Berry & Thread

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Juliska (34)

It’s an artistic Bohemian lifestyle combined with an afternoon garden delight. The Juliska Berry & Thread ceramics dinnerware collection lends a light feel akin to the serene but passionate atmosphere in an artist’s studio. The rims are encrusted with handcrafted flower motifs and threadlike pattern, while the surface is rendered in an unblemished glossy finish. As with other Juliska collections, the ceramics’ density is at once delicate—mimicking a porcelain’s “tink”—and sturdy as a Greco-Roman earthenware. The Berry & Thread collection is available in earth colors, including soil brown, mossy green, sea blue, and cloudy white. They are a perfect collection for a garden set or lunchtime with special guests. The set includes chargers, plates, side plates, dessert plates, soup bowls, mugs, small casserole, and oval baker.

Summer escape

Posted by Schiffman's at 4:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

Summer may be half over but it’s not too late to bring it into your home. Enjoy a sunny day with the Juliska Summer collection, fine ceramics that evoke the great green outdoors of a good weather. This Juliska line is dominated by hues of green as a toast to the lush flora that bloom on summer days. The Green Marbleized Cocktail Plate Set exhibits swirling patterns that evoke a meadow swaying with the afternoon breeze. The Triple Server is inspired by bamboos; it’s a fitting item to serve small bites in the garden on a casual day. Likewise, you can serve cheese and bread with the bamboo-themed Small Platter for that easy midday break.

Accents and accessories matter

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

Think beyond the plates, servers, platters and coffee and tea sets when creating an impressive dining set. Consider, too, the centrepieces and accents that go with your dinnerware. Juliska offers a full range of impressive glass table decors to provide an exclamation to your set. Juliska’s covered urns and canisters are a magnificent piece that easily draws attention. The glass beads run across its global sphere, which can match porcelain, ceramics or silver dinnerware. The bowls and compotes are also genuinely captivating as the cake domes and pedestals. The unblemished, smooth glass surface, punctuated by detailed glass accents, provides the classy highlight to your dining theatre.

Cheap is dangerous

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:35 PM in Juliska (34)

At the risk of being branded a sexist, I suggest to all men to give their women the fine stoneware ceramics of Juliska for dinner set. In case you get into a physical argument with her, and in her rage she thinks of hurling plates your way (men can be victims of domestic violence, you know), she’ll think twice of throwing that Juliska in her hands. C’mon, will she really dare destroy those classic lines of the Juliska dinnerware in soft color tones that add elegance to the dining set? In ice blue, pistachio green, whitewash and cappuccino brown, the Juliska stoneware collection can make one dreamy in Romanesque charm even in the middle of a fiery tempest. My unabashed prediction is that she’ll likely to put the Juliska ceramic down. And cast her eye on that made-in-China flower pot you bought from the grocery last year. Be cheap at your own peril.

Wipe in style

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:40:00 AM in Juliska (34)

It may be renowned for fine crystal and ceramics. But Juliska offers a dimension to its signature: beautifully woven and designed linens. The Juliska linen collection complements its glass and ceramic ware. The soft, weaving cotton fabric of Juliska's napkins add contrast to the hard and delicate surface of a Juliska stoneware plate. The combination teases both the sense of sight and touch. The napkins are designed to blend in an elegant Juliska set; they don't draw in attention, yet the napkins lay on the table in apparent confidence, a true member of the Juliska classy dining collection. The napkins come in various shades of green, blue and brown. You can choose between floral pattern or stripes to set the mood of the dining.

Forget the champagne, it’s the glass

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

I half suspect that when you serve wine or liquor, the alcohol is twice made remarkable not by its age, brewing technique or variety, but by the glass that it is served in. Especially if it is a Juliska. Regarded for its perfection of European art glass, Juliska offers a full range of glassware that is at once utilitarian and masterpieces. The Juliska champagne and martini line is an example. Your mind wanders not where the champagne is made, but who created the flute. The Juliska glassware is adorned with translucent swirls that seem to play with champagne bubbles. The same feel is applied on a Juliska ice bucket. Meantime, the martini glass is vintage and stylish. The stem is animated with fine etches reminiscent of a Corinthian pillar, and the slender, narrowing stem makes the whole glass alluring and teasingly sensual. Juliska can really make you forget about the champagne.

Tuscany in Manhattan

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

How can you have a smooth dining when your eyes are constantly mesmerized by the marbleized patterns of a Firenze plate, the Juliska ceramic collection inspired by the ancient hand-marbleized papers in Florence, Italy? The random swirls of cappuccino tones take you to an al fresco meal under a Tuscan morning sun. The rich caramel tones bring images of a busy Florentine village, an explosion of colors and textures of the villagers’ clothes, the sellers’ stalls and the cobbled stone streets. The unpredictable blue tones invite you to the deep Mediterranean shore; you can almost breathe in the untainted sea breeze. Tuscan hillsides come to life, framed by Italian cypress pine trees in the horizon. Your mood is thrown far away in the open Tuscan field all while having a dinner in the crowded restaurant in the middle of Manhattan.

Let there be light

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

Juliska literally adds light to your home. The Juliska lighting line puts this utilitarian function to a higher level, an art form notwithstanding. The Pendant Lighting is a favorite, short of a masterpiece that demands its own corner in an art exhibit.  The ornament can be subtle as in the Amalia Small Globe, a simple yet classy swirling sphere of incandescence. Or the work can be as intricate as the FlorenceSmall Globe with its armor of droplets spread around the light. It creates its own celestial roof at night or a stunning sculpture at day. The Juliska Pendant Lighting collection is perfect as an accent or centerpiece to add elegance to your home.

Everyday items made classy

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

The distinct European art in a Juliska mouth-blown glass is patent. The translucence is deep, the curves and lines are delicate and the functionality is sturdy as expected. Juliska is inspired by six centuries of European mouth-blown glassmaking art and it transforms this tradition into a modern glassware collection for the most discriminating dinner guest. The barware is perfect for the finest spirit. The stemware demands only the best wine. Even the tumblers transform an everyday utility into a classy piece of art. Not the least bowls and compotes showcase intricate spiraling minute details that only a master artisan can accomplish. Other mouth-blown Juliska glassware items to be had include vases, accessories, and urns and canisters.

Tough beauty

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Juliska (34)

 

Juliska is known for its wide array of luminous collection of handmade glassware that is unique with no two identical items. But the brand has equally perfected its ceramic line, producing transparent glaze finish while creating tough first-grade stoneware that is resistant to scratches and chipping. A Juliska ceramic is ready for your dishwasher and microwave. Juliska’s depth of color is also evident in its ceramics line, such as its Classic Bamboo, Firenze, Le Panier, and the classic Jardins du Monde whitewash. The ceramic dinnerware—plates, cups, saucers—exudes earthly warmth that fits any fine or casual dining experience. Tough and elegant, the Juliska ceramics line compliments any other Juliska items including its linens, lighting, flatware, and home fragrance lines.
