stirring up the meltingpot

My love for eating and the right presentation of food, has led me to the art of ceramics. I've collected dishes and other ceramics ever since I began traveling the world as a fashion model. I started designing my own pottery after enrolling in a ceramics class some 15 years ago. I am inspired by archeological finds and tribal art.

"Mrs Wellwood’s soft finger ran lightly over a platter containing very lively images, in pottery, of a small toad, a curled snake, a few beetles, some moss and ferns, and a black crayfish.     ‘I’ve never seen anything so lifelike. Every little wart and wrinkle.’”© A.S. Byatt, ‘The Children’s Book’, pg 11 (Chatto & Windus, 2009)

Jeff Koons’s Play-Doh is made up of twenty-seven individual interlocking pieces of painted aluminum and took two decades to fabricate. Definitely not child’s play!
