My philosophy is that regarding the quotidian as art down to the detail renders so much more out of life. That's the aim of my work be it baking a pie, writing prose, styling a photo shoot or just a table, arranging foraged florals, hosting a gathering, teaching a workshop, or cooking a dinner. I strive to appreciate every scent, every texture, every season, every taste. Even something as simple as a fresh garbage bag that I didn't have to change myself. I want to love my sugar bowl and my toothpaste, what I learn from conflict and from a weeping meringue. Sometimes beauty is very ugly, and sometimes the ugly is very beautiful. Beth Kirby
