This small plate is perfect for sweet or savoury nibbles, its compact size is surprisingly versatile. Whether serving up a mezze feast, or stashing half a tomato for tomorrow's lunch, this will become a firm favourite in no time. Just use your imagination!
All pieces in her latest range are made by hand in Silvia’s favourite terracotta clay that has been fired to mid temperature to give it a beautiful rich red colour. The iron in the clay finds its way through the grey-blue tin glaze and results in uniquely varying waves of speckles around the edges of the ware. The simple decorative quality of a coloured line is achieved through the use of a palette of complementary colours.
Silvia’s latest range takes inspiration from traditional tin glazed folk pots from her native Slovakia and from sources as diverse as Spanish drug jars to Iraqi dinner plates.
