New Fiestaware Color: Claret
Okay, we have established that Fiestaware is my obsession. I have all the colors, the linens, the flatware, and a tattoo, giving me the all the fiesta cred I need to prove this point. It is a truth held self-evident by every fiber of my being that I LOVE Fiestaware. And because I love it so much about every year around my birthday they announce a new color. Saturday morning I woke up early to see what the new color would be, hoping for fuchsia or magenta, but the new color is Claret,as in a dark wine color. The color actually harkens back to the previously limited run Raspberry color from 20 years ago. I am excited and think the color will definitely find a home with the rest of my colorful dishes. Not to be content with just announcing a new color, the good folks at Homer Laughlin also introduced a new matte black as well. I am unsure how I feel about a non-shiny piece of Fiestaware, but I do think the matte black will lend to some great bakeware pieces. Looking forward to seeing the new color and finish in June.
