    “I enjoy making new designs of tableware and decorating them by hand. I use the dishes in my own home for color, variety and the basis of table decorations that are just fun. I also like working in slabs so that I can press simple but tasteful designs into my work.

    “I make every single piece we sell in Fairfield County, Connecticut. We use time-honored forms and techniques to achieve our widely-admired beauty and functionality, using my own designs entirely–we do not have a factory in China! Our products are stoneware: this means they are more durable, safe and creative than what one sees in the “big box” stores. Although we’re proud of our products here and feel that they’re better quality than the imports, please don’t buy our products for these reasons alone! Buy our products because you love the way they look and feel. That’s why we love them!”
