"I made some large porcelain bowls for Stella McCartney for her Hong Kong and Paris stores and made jugs for Heston Blumenthal’s Roman Feast C4 show. David Chipperfield RA (architect of Turner Gallery) owns 2 bowls. Guardian cook/poverty activist Jack Monroe uses my dinner ware for recipe photoshoots."
