Michael Wainwrights mastery at combining porcelain, bone china and glass with precious metal is a reflection of his experience as both a sculptor and a jeweler. Many of Wainwrights designs evolved out of studies in Italy and travels along the Mediterranean. He developed an affinity for the use of landscape and architecture, and has collections inspired by the Piazza San Marco in Venice, the Palio in Siena, and the Amalfi Coast, among others. Wainwright is the sole designer of every piece in his collections. His porcelain and bone china dinnerware and accessories are all made and hand-painted in the USA, with 24k gold and platinum.
