Painter, jewelry designer, and an artist in every way, Leah Piepgras creates ethereal and provocative pieces of work in countless mediums. Her latest endeavor is “Consumption, a five-piece place setting used during the mental, physical, and spiritual act of consuming.” Leah describes the dishes as “a map of the digestive tract from mouth to anus. They are a reminder of the processes that are taking place within you while you are eating, promoting an exercise in mindfulness. ” These dishes are being produced in a limited addition by Pickard China in Illinois. They are currently available on her web site (www.leahpiepgras.com) for pre-order.
