Functional handmade ceramics set the stage; they can transform eating and drinking into an opportunity for renewal or a time to build community and relationships. They are the backdrop to life’s simple daily routines. Eating is about more than just feeding the body; it is about nourishing the mind and spirit. These simple everyday events can provide an anchor in a life full of change and unpredictability. Each object can be seen as a tool for modern living made to
compliment and elevate life’s simplest moments. They remind us to take the time to set the table, prepare a meal and pause.
