Collecting china and silver has been a passion of mine ever since I was a child. The history of an object - how it was used and why has always fascinated me. Today I like to take an old piece and repurpose it to fit today's lifestyles. After 30 years in the design field I have found accessorizing is "the frosting on a cake" of a project . Sharing my passion with others and helping them use old things in a new way is the designers way of recycling. "What was once old will be new again."
