My love for cooking and all things green is what inspires me to create. Plain yet kindhearted dishes become entwined in our daily lives through choosing a coffee mug first thing in the morning to deciding which bowl is just right for homemade soup or planting an array of herbs in a handmade planter. With each fingerprint, pinch, and coil I am creating a conversation. Some dishes denote exactly what goes in or on them and some leave it open to interpretation and spontaneity. I want each piece to transport delight from myself to the user. It’s simple, it’s honest, it’s lighthearted, it’s happy.
