Pacific launched their iconic Hostessware dinnerware line in 1932. In its ten-year run, Pacific produced almost 200 pieces in a wide variety of bright, cheerful colors. Learn more about Hostessware and explore one of the most comprehensive collections in the world.

The creative talent at Pacific Clay added flair to Hostessware with the 1934 launch of their decorated ware. Pacific produced over 50 different in-glazed designs, many one-of-a-kind, in the few years that the patterns were in production. Check out this comprehensive pattern guide with close to 200 examples.

At QwkDog Design, I enjoy creating designs inspired by California colorware. Many of these logo and print designs are available on a variety of items and fabrics through third-party providers like Society6 and Spoonflower.
