Jadeite, pale flower-petal pink, milk white, and a swirling grey: Our colors from Ohio-based maker Mosser Glass are pretty near perfect.

But we thought it was time to shake things up. (We like messing with perfect, see?) Please welcome our newest color from Mosser—a brilliant, soothing blue—which they designed exclusively for us (and you!). It's the only Mosser Color you can't get anywhere else. It's Food52's Mosser blue.

We're launching these new blue pieces in a few short weeks—but before then, we need your help to name the newly minted color. Take a look:

After many brainstorming sessions (one even with the entire company) wherein we batted around names of flowers, foods, and bodies of water that this blue reminded us of, we decided they were all a little too literal. We wanted, as Merrill put it, "something abstract that has meaning to us!" A blue that gets at the heart of Food52.

Here are three options we settled on, without further ado:

  • Chelsea (Food52's neighborhood in NYC for the past three years!)
  • Georgica (The site of Amanda's family's home, in Long Island—and where she got married!)
  • Brooklin (Not to be confused with the borough near us; this is the town in Maine where Merrill was married, and the site of her family home.)
The blue looks lighter in bright lights and more saturated in shadows (these are the first of the new cake stands in production!).

It's a very special color—in all their forty-plus years as a company, Mosser has never come up with a color exclusively for any of their partners—so we're more than a little excited.

Tell us in the comments which name you like the best for our new blue—Chelsea Blue, Georgica Blue, or Brooklin Blue—and we'll name a winner very soon.
