Launching Today: The Platter Project from Permanent Collection

November 2, 2023

We recently heard from Fanny Singer, the founder of Permanent Collection (one of our favorite cult houseware lines), about her new Platter Project, a collection of limited edition platters she commissioned from a small group of artists and artisans. “The project celebrates the art of cooking, entertaining, and gathering around the table with a series of small-edition handmade platters designed for family style conviviality (but beautiful enough to keep on permanent display),” she says. “Every six months to a year, we’ll release a new capsule collection of platters in a range of media (from ceramic to wood to papier-maché, etc.), bringing together works by artisans and fine artists alike, many I’ve known from my years of working in the art and design worlds.”

The first collection includes six platters made by LA-based artists Raina Lee and Kymia Nawabi, Norfolk-based potter Edmund Davies, Petaluma-based ceramicist Zoe Dering, and Philadelphia-based ceramic artist Jordan McDonald.

Here’s a look:

Above: Zoe Dering is a Bay Area-based potter known for her hand-carving technique. For Permanent Collection, she created an oval platter hand-built from a slab and glazed in a glossy white glaze reminiscent of a meringue frosting. A bas-relief scalloped detail ornaments the edge. Her platter references early 20th-century white stoneware fish platters from France: exaggerated ovals intended for the dimensions of a whole fish to be served at the table. $400 from Permanent Collection.

Above: Los Angeles-based multidisciplinary artist Kymia Nawabi created a wide, round hand-built marbled platter made of two different clays whose natural color values work in visual opposition. Inspired by the Japanese Nerikomi technique of stacking and cutting different colors of clay to create patterns, Kymia Nawabi’s process yields unpredictable, geologic designs. $400 from Permanent Collection.

Above: LA-based Raina Lee’s racetrack-shaped stoneware platter is hand-built from a slab and glazed with multiple custom glazes. Raina Lee’s intention with the glazing was to create a watery landscape, the feeling of an atmospheric seascape, or body of water giving way to land. $400 from Permanent Collection.

Above: Edmund Davies, a studio potter based in Norfolk, UK, contributed a round mid-sized stoneware platter thrown on the wheel in an iron- rich blend of clays with a soft semi-transparent eggshell texture; the platter is painted freehand with a quilt-like pattern of iron and cobalt oxide, an inky hue that alludes to Japanese sumi ink calligraphy. $250 from Permanent Collection.
