ADORN YOUR TABLE
The Silver Duck was founded in 2012 by Bristol based award-winning silversmith Charlotte Anne Duckworth. Designing and making beautiful pieces of cutlery and tableware from sterling silver and locally sourced English holly, Charlotte creates exquisite yet functional pieces of art for the kitchen.
Charlotte’s ethos revolves around simple, elegant designs that are ergonomic and tactile. With the intention of provoking people to appreciate their food and take time over their daily routines and rituals in the kitchen.
Immersing herself in the creative process from beginning to end, the journey of each piece often begins with Charlotte jumping through hedgerows and stomping around woods, gathering and foraging for branches that may inspire her designs. Using traditional techniques of forging and raising, Charlotte has an inherent understanding of the materials that she works with, creating magical utensils that preserve and capture their natural qualities.
The cutlery is made from sterling silver for its robust qualities. Holly is a hard, durable wood, coupling beautifully with the silver. The wood is treated with a food safe oil to protect against staining.
The Silver Duck collections are finished to the highest standards. Each piece is hallmarked in London, in accordance to the Assay Office's rules and regulations and guarantees the precious metal content of the item you are buying.
Charlotte Anne has worked with clients such as Heston Blumenthal, who now own her bespoke pieces of tableware. A recent collaboration with the Michelin star chef, Michael Wignall, led to the creation of the ‘Canape Platter’ which has just won the bronze award at Goldsmiths Craft and Design awards 2019.
