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.
