During my M.A. in Asian Art History I spent many happy hours at the British Museum sketching designs from Song dynasty ceramics and Yuan and Ming porcelain. I pursued this interest during a stint at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg, and for several years at Christie's in London. But the most fun began when I joined the London-based company de Gournay: I traveled to Jingdezhen, the birthplace of porcelain, set up a studio, hired artesans and started designing and producing porcelain dinner services and objects after the taste of 18th century Europe. Over time the types of ceramics, shapes and glazes evolved, and I set up my own company with a group of my Chinese friends in Jingdezhen. This is the story of KERAMIS.
