My life is always reflected in my work somehow. I have recently found myself in a place where I am concerned about healthy eating vs. processed and fast foods and living in the moment vs. obsessive worrying about the future. My lifestyle is changing and my work, when used, encourages others to do so as well. The thought of eating or drinking out of a form that might “harm” you is disturbing, but it is the food served in those dishes that can cause the real damage.
