Delft Treasure Platter & Trinket Dish - Fliff Carr


Fliff Carr’s domestic ware is designed to be functional and made with the intention of evoking past lives and sense of found treasure. She has chosen specific images from a collection of sherds to make her own stamps with which to emboss and mark the platters. The platter and trinket dish are adorned with found ceramic fragments, mostly gathered mudlarking along the Thames, in the form of chips of Delft ceramics. The platter and the dish could adorn a table, or hung on the wall, or used to hold other treasures - jewellery... 

Fliff Carr is a designer and maker of simple yet refined ceramic tableware and interior products. Fliff has worked with clay in her studio in north London for the past 16 years.

Fliff has used white earthenware clay, hand-rolled, glazed with a matte velum and detailed with gold lustre. 

“The collection of commissioned plates and platters has evolved from conversations with Susanna about our shared interest in found objects, memory and historical reference, a love of collecting and my particular obsession with searching for ‘treasure’ on the Thames foreshore. I am drawn to images and objects of the past that I use to inform my work and inspire the making process.  I love to create individual ceramic pieces that elicit the desire in you to seek out the one to which you are most drawn, in the same way that I search for and find the objects that most excite me.  The ceramic fragments that I have embedded in these platters were mostly found mudlarking along the River Thames in London. These are the broken bowls, cups and plates from centuries past reimagined for a 21st C table”.
