Dream place to install your work? “I’d love to do more dishes for restaurants, and have more people eating off my pieces every day. I did some dishes for a sushi restaurant on Clinton Street in Manhattan. I had to do 180 pieces for them, and it’s like a 7-course meal so for each course they wanted a different motif on the glaze.

We talked about a color family, talking a lot about the ocean and fish.”
