Charlotte Anne Duckworth, owner of the Silver Duck, is based in Devon, currently making pieces for commissions and exhibitions. The Silver Duck is a small independent business producing hand forged and crafted beautiful sterling silver flatware. Using locally sourced wooden holly handles that are treated with a food safe mineral oil. Her aim is to make ergonomic and tactile pieces that are functional and usable. The cutlery is attached to natural wood, making each piece individual and unique. Organic forms are used a source of inspiration for the work and as a stimulus during the development process. This quality is encompassed through using locally sourced wood in addition the silver, whilst also making the pieces more affordable.
