The saying about bright lights emerging from places of darkness might be said of Glenn Tebble’s creativity. Having lived with Cystic Fibrosis from a young age, Glenn’s life changed dramatically in 2009 when he was gifted life in the form of a double lung transplant.
By then he was an established teacher and practitioner of ceramics and design, having started as a hobby ceramic student over 20 years before.
Initially teaching ceramics and selling works to Melbourne galleries and homeware shops, Glenn’s signature style was quickly recognised as sharp and unique. Glenn Tebble Homewares (GTH) enabled his complete immersion, initially in ceramics and design, and later in the world of food as well, making beautiful table ware for the hospitality industry. Starting out with only half a dozen pieces, and supported by a talented design team, Glenn worked closely with leading chefs to produce perfect bespoke pieces for many of Australia’s top restaurants.
In the past five years, over 150 restaurants have chosen to plate up with GTH tableware, appreciating the signature GTH unique style, quality and finish. Top TV cooking shows have also embraced GTH designs, with My Kitchen Rules 2016, the most recent to feature our stunning range.
Poor health forced Glenn’s extended absence from work in 2014. His crafty mind, always restless for excellent design, reflected on improving his tableware collection – retaining his signature modern, timeless design while enhancing the plates and bowls as organic, modern Australian, free form, and resilient.
The product is Glenn’s 2016 collection of satin glazed six piece sets available in six organic shades (ash, earth, grass, onyx, sky and soil), hand crafted by an Australian treasure: Bendigo Pottery, one of the world’s most established and highly regarded potteries, established in the gold rush years in the 1850’s in north-western Victoria.
Each piece of Glenn’s 2016 range is a beautiful free form, organic shaped and shaded, robust, and dishwasher, oven and microwave friendly.
The 2016 collection is available through our online store here. The product’s retail availability makes it more accessible for the home cook and lifts the simplest of everyday meals.
