Next on the list are ceramics with a touch of whimsy. As I always say, we all need some whimsy in our lives – put some of these on your tables & walls and you’ll be all set for the day.
STATEMENT: Ordinary environments are my source of inspiration. Since I was a child, how people create homes has captured me – what we choose to save and what we choose to get rid of, what creates comfort and safety, what is sentimental, and what is a symbol of success. I make handmade objects because they create warmth in a home, and often remind us that imperfection is beautiful and authentic.
