I am very much a vintage market person and collect a hotch-potch of Victorian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, 50 ‘s and 60’s porcelain, ceramics, silver, glass and whatever is pretty for that matter! I use all of my finds otherwise what is the point?
Every now and then a modern design catches my eye as recently happened when seeing a display and meeting young Aaron Kearney of Aaron Kearney Design. It is just so pretty and the lovely, clever and clean lines of his plates make music to my eyes.
He said that the flat rim of the plate was “born” from his frustration of not having a rim on a plate to push that last fork of food against and to get the last morsel from the plate. His design then evolved into a whole collection of these beautiful shapes. I tried and tested and approved!
The flat rim is perfect to catch the last sauce, the last fork of food or to use as a serving ‘handle” but most of all the design can just sit there and be a pretty plate. High quality stuff and it comes in a variety of colours and sizes. Well done Aaron and I can not wait to see where you take this and what you think of next.
