Have you ever created something in a pottery class?
Many moons ago (it may have been middle school!), I created a small blue and white glazed vase which I thought would be perfect for fresh flowers; in reality it sat by itself in the kitchen for a while. I’m not sure what happened to the vase, but I thought it was fun to work with my hands. I always have an appreciation for someone who can create works of art with their hands, like a sculptor, potter, or ceramist. I’m guessing Tory Burch felt the same way when she first started collecting Palm Beach based Dodie Thayer’s handmade dinnerware (Brooker Astor and Jackie O. were also fans!)
While some may say her cabbage or lettuce ceramic pieces merely mimic the style of other ceramists like the 19th century potter Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, her version is a lighter, yet more refined interpretation. One can’t deny that these are fun and whimsical pieces. So lettuce eat (I couldn’t resist!)
