We are excited to announce the launch of a very special product – one that has been created by the coming together of three, like minded creative businesses. Drum roll please … The Squish Dish (or lovingly termed “The Squish'' for short).
More about this hand-crafted home décor treasure
The Squish is a multifunctional piece of homeware that can be used as a jewellery dish, coaster, candle holder or even a wall hanging and will be treasured for many years to come. We love a creative collaboration and this playful home accessory embodies the unification of three artists, representing all of our crafts and skills in one beautiful hand-crafted output that will inject a sense of fun into any home interior design.
The Squish Dish has been inspired by a pair of colourful statement clay earrings, originally designed and made by Alice, owner of Pink Moon Designs. Emilie & Sam at Florence + Blank then upscaled the shape in clay and expertly glazed and fired it, ready to be moulded by Lucia, founder of Pigment & Razzo. Once set, Lucia was able to cast the final product using Jesmonite, a water-based acrylic that imitates concrete. Due to the nature of the material, it means that no piece is ever the same and is therefore truly unique. You’ll be able to select from two colourways: soothing Forest Green or our delicate Peach Petal.
More about the artists and makers
Pink Moon is a tiny, one woman business run from Alice’s flat in Bristol where she hand mixes all of the bright, vibrant colours that are so integral to Pink Moon earrings. Her wonderful clay pieces are often hand moulded meaning every single pair is totally unique – just like you.
Our aim for Florence + Blank is to provide a creative retail platform to help support and promote artists and makers whose aesthetic we love. We are dedicated to slow design and small batch works, championing unique one-off pieces and environmentally friendly homewares that last a lifetime. We care deeply about our brand, our makers and artists and of course our customers.
Founder Lucia Di Landro works solely with a material called Jesmonite, crafting handmade home décor. The name Pigment & Razzo stems from the concept of having pieces either coloured with pigments or containing aggregate to imitate terrazzo. Along with a beautiful collection of drinks coasters and small trays available, Lucia is also open to requests for bespoke commissions.
Thank you as always for supporting our independent homeware shop and the artisans we work with. We hope that you love that Squish Dish collaboration as much as we do and would love to see how you style your Squish in your own home, so please share your photos and tag us on Instagram and Facebook! And to celebrate our one year anniversary, we are offering free shipping on all purchases for the whole of April.
