I love dinnerware, always have.  It was on my grandmother's kitchen walls and it filled our cupboards.  Some of it I could touch when my mom was looking and then there was the stuff I played with when she wasn't.

My love for dinnerware first took me to study product design at Parsons in NYC then onto ancient Chinese factories and to the high tech world of German factories.  The process of making a plate from start to finish after all these years hasn't lost it's charm.

There is such pleasure in eating off something you find beautiful or simply dropping your keys on a lovely dish.  Life is all about the little things.  Designing for these moments is my thing, my joy.
