a note from the artist:
"Making things have been taking up most of time for better part of my life.
I've always appreciated hand made things. We are hardwired to find special beauty in hand crafted things. If and when I can, I like using hand made objects for everyday use.
As a maker of hand made objects, I came to appreciate resources and raw materials more, and I value all the work behind an useful object.
After studying fine art and earning a master degree in multi media arts, I wanted apply my education to "hand making" process and designing everyday things. So with occasional inspiration from my husband (artist and architectural designer ) , my business was born in my kitchen. "
