Portuguese dinnerware company Porcel is unveiling two collections: Sunstone and Matcha. Sunstone is a full set of porcelain pieces decorated with fine gold lines, resulting in a reflective geometric pattern. Matcha is a soft green collection named after the Japanese powder made from green tea leaves. With a selection of nine colored pieces, green is the international symbol of hope, Porcel said. “Matcha is also vibrant and optimistic, just as the world wishes this new year to be.” Joining the Passion and Apricot collections, Matcha comes with the same composition, offering a selection of three colors for the same pieces so that mixing and matching is made easy.
Fellow tabletop company Jars is presenting a fresh new green color for spring, called “Vuelta Nori.” Vuelta uses a glazing technique of applying several overglazes in dilute form to create depth and complexity.

The new color is available in a dinner plate, dessert plate, soup plate, serving bowl and salad bowl. Prices range from $40 to $108 depending upon the shape.
