Tudor Green Platter I
Tudor Green Platter I by ceramicist Matthew Foster is part of The New Craftsmen’s ‘Claylarks’
collection. For these new works by Matthew, he primarily looked to historical dinner and serveware and the decoration and rouletting that can be found on them. Whilst looking through the archives at the Museum of London, he was also intrigued by the various shapes and animal figures that were found on pots from the Medieval, Roman and 14th century. These somewhat simplistic designs from the Roman era were often on larger pots, which can be seen within Matthew’s work for this project. His collection hosts a variety of pieces, including Tudor Green Platter I, which he intended to be used ceremoniously, as part of joyous occasions and celebrations.
