HD PEOPLE
   


Favorite travel destination
Budapest

My work is

The playful search for beauty

Inspiration comes from
Lovely gardens, the human body

Greatest lesson learned
After spending 16 months in a Stalinist prison, I felt that all life after that was a gift

I love
A rounded shape that fits nicely into the hand

Mentor
Angel Zárraga, a Mexican painter I met in Paris in the '20s, who guided me when I painted my self-portrait

Recently completed products

My most successful design
Hallcraft, now reproduced as Classic Century by Royal Stafford

 
 
Every tabletop should have
A centerpiece or vase

Color of choice
Orange


My happy place
In my studio/country house sitting in front of the fire
