Fliff Carr is a maker of simple yet beautiful ceramics. Working from her studio in north London for the last 16 years, her finely thrown and hand rolled work is uniquely eclectic. Exploration of scale and pattern characterise Fliff’s sometimes whimsical often surprising pieces. Shell-like white earthenware clay is combined with found objects and touches of gold and platinum lustre to create these magical pieces.
Inspired by her a love of found objects Fliff uses artefacts and fragments of a past narrative as a constant inspiration for her work. She references details from fields as diverse as book illustration, cathedral glass, graffiti, machinery, masonry and lace which inform the texture, shape and imagery present in her collection.
“I am drawn to the idea of collecting and like to design and display things in groups. My use of gold adds to the notion of ‘treasure’, of found objects that are precious.”
