Ana Deman is an inspiration to me: She left a successful career in the film industry to pursue her dream of creating a line of home accessories inspired by nature and her travels, and to complement her lifestyle. (Sound familiar?)
In short, she creates works of art that you can use every day. Each of her creations is handmade with love in France, and no two are exactly the same – just the way she wants it to be. Home designers are taking notice of her work, too; her linens were recently featured in Elle Décor UK.
The linens are beautiful, but what I really fell in love with were some of the pottery she’s done. I love the bowls with simple French expressions, like “Made with Love”, and this pretty cup and plate set. Each piece is numbered and signed by Ana Deman and are of the finest quality. I can’t speak highly enough of them.
If you have questions about these items or about placing a special order, please feel free to contact me! I know you’ll love these in your kitchen as much as I do.
