Why pineapples? “The first commission I ever made was for a friend who asked me to make a big pineapple! I wouldn’t have thought of that myself but then once I made it I thought about so many other things. So for that show, I made other fruits, like a big watermelon with a slice cut out of it, and I really liked them. But to have a giant watermelon in your house is not an easy sell. So I thought about shrinking it down really tiny. People seemed to like that so I expanded the line.”
