Brick Gothic Dish
Brick Gothic Dish by ceramicist James Rigler is part of The New Craftsmen’s ‘Claylarks’
collection. Whilst mudlarking on the foreshore of the River Thames, James found himself drawn to the Thames potatoes - ubiquitous pebbles of London brick rubbed smooth by the river. These tumbled fragments of London’s architectural history inspired James to create a collection of graphic-shaped dishes and platters, which reference objects that were once used, held and lost. He was drawn to the idea of re-discovery providing a new purpose and value, gaining a whole new story. The colours and textures throughout the collection reflect the materials and qualities of his mudlarking experience.
