Seeing this kitchen makes me very, very happy! I love the use of color. I'm in the middle of my kitchen renovation and wish I was brave enough to do something this bold and creative! Perhaps this will inspire me !
I learned recently about Lucie Rie through my friend, and fellow ceramicist, Paula, who is a fan of Lucie's work. Lucie was born in 1902 in Vienna, and died, at age 93, in London where she lived for 57 years. She was one of the leading studio potters of the 20th century, earning many awards and recognition during her lifetime. The work that Lucie produced was quite modern for her time. She worked exclusively on the wheel. Having an extensive knowledge of ceramic chemistry she was able to develop many interesting glazes that became her signature. Her work is truly inspiring!
I received a copy of this delicious new book for Christmas this year. Noma: Time and Place in
Nordic Cuisine is a look at the philosophy and creativity of chef Rene Redzepi and his innovative Copenhagen restaurant, Noma. The book includes many recipes, along with Redzepi's story on developing the cuisine for his restaurant and his committment to finding ingredients of the highest quality. The photography, by Ditte Isager, is stunning. I'm dreaming of visiting this restaurant....maybe this year?!
