Delighting the Senses with Great Design

What Inspires Me:It is difficult to express the incredible pleasure I derive daily from this utilitarian combination of three things: a Heath Ceramics ramekin, Maldon Sea Salt Flakes, and a Jonathan Wild Cherry Spoon.  Each of them is handmade perfection; the ramekin a thrill to the touch, the salt a delight to the tongue and the spoon a visual joy.  There is such obvious pride and care put into the making of these objects that I am inspired to work at my own craft with an equal commitment to excellence.” – Nancie Mills Pipgras
