With 25 items in each of five different coloured, hand-finished rich reactive glazes, Murra offers venues a chance to personalise their serving and add individuality to the tabletop. The toffee colourway brings rich warm tones to the table while the blush pieces exhibit beautifully delicate shimmering tones. There is an ash colourway for those wanting a dark canvas to showcase food, for washes of a warm golden colour choose the honey variation. Finally, the blue glaze of Pacific creates stunning tonal effects evoking crystal clear waters and bringing vibrancy to the table.
