I create unique and beautiful porcelain tableware handcrafted for your home. With emphasis on the staples of cups, plates and bowls I make a variety of sizes so these pieces can be used on our daily lives, from serving a large family or group of friends to intimate snack sized dishes for one. Each item I make is designed and decorated to connect function and art. I truly believe using handmade objects in our daily lives brings a sense of connection, grounding and appreciation for work, art and nature.
