Waller Handmade

The studio

Waller Handmade was founded by sculptor Michael Waller in 2018 with a mission to create functional, handcrafted culinary art that can be handed down for generations. Fusing sculpture and design with traditional and contemporary methods avows a place where art, food, culture and heritage are forged together.

Creative, functional craftsmanship guaranteed for life.
