An unforgettable place you’ve travelled to in the past year? Basel, Switzerland, where I exhibited at Design Miami/Basel as part of Southern Guild. It was such an awesome experience, especially the architecture of the Herzog and de Meuron convention centre building. We also floated down the Rhine River, where we had drinks on the banks.
The book on your bedside table? Mostly magazines, am generally very tired when I get home.
The last meal that truly impressed you? Thai green chicken curry, made by my new next-door neighbour.
The last music you downloaded? Kavinsky. I was fascinated by the movie Drive.
The thing you are eyeing next? Working with architects, where I am planning to design and build an apartment on top of my current studio. Super-excited as this will be a wonderful project and if everything is successful then I will have a beautiful mountain view and an apartment that I customised myself.
The one thing you will always find in your fridge? Milk, coffee, beer and wine.
The best gift you’ve given recently? At my recent studio launch I gave one of my black clay “Kan” jugs to Tracy Lynch and one of my new Avondale wine-packaging units to Antoni Amorim, the chairman and CEO of Amorim International.
And the best one you’ve received? A Tulip vase by artists Gerhard and Anthony from Ceramic Matters.
The place that inspires you and why? My studio. I truly feel that when I enter the four walls, everything falls away and I can breathe, design and play with different materials. The layout is perfectly arranged to inspire and create.
A recent special “find/discovery”? I recently developed a new bird house that stands about 4m tall. I think clients will instantly connect with it.
The last item you added to your wardrobe? A strange but very cool wetsuit-like fabric hoodie.
Favourite city and why? Berlin, but this might change as I am planning a trip to New York.
