This hand-crafted platter by Jennifer Morris embodies elegance and simplicity with its smooth, glazed, stone-white surface and effortless contours. The generous raised bat clay edge accentuates the stoneware's natural characteristics, while the platter's functional design makes it perfect for elevating everyday rituals.
About the Artist:
Jennifer Morris is a ceramic artist based close to the Maud & Mabel Gallery in Hampstead, London. A pre-foundation course in 2008 introduced her to working with clay. Morris hand-builds objects that can be easily inserted into daily life and provide both joy and function. Using an understated and limited colour palette, which draws attention to the silhouettes of her creations, Morris experiments with different stoneware and earthenware clays. Her creative process is intuitive; visualising an image in her mind and then creating it in three-dimensional form - ‘I sketch in clay, making new ideas come to life’. For Morris, this allows her to find inspiration during the process, letting her works organically develop, retaining energy and movement in her pieces.
