Sandstone piece handmade by Diana Prak in Paris
Diana Prak is a beekeeper, restaurant guide columnist, communications consultant and potter. She lives and works in Paris. Her passion for cooking and the time she spends at tables in restaurants naturally lead her to tableware and ceramics. With a frugal approach, Diana produces primitive and living pottery. There is nothing in her pieces other than what she gleans: clays, rocks, sand collected during her expeditions. Her enamels are made from ashes that she collects from those close to her. She practices filming and modeling.
