Product Details

Name: Loop Over - Domed Pot

Artist Name: Fliff Carr

Size: 14 cm 13 cm (not including 'loop')

A one off piece. Hand thrown fine earthenware with found object.

 

In many ways Fliff Carr's works are beautiful pieces of function, a lidded pot for keeping your own treasures, a luxurious butter dish for a special breakfast - a cheese dish even.

However, as you look at the piece closely it begins to reveal its poetic story; the fine, shell-like domes recall the shape of buoys bobbing in the water. The 'mudlark' finds are clustered, clinging like barnacles, or sitting proudly like sentinels on top.

About the maker

 

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.”
