An expert in Chinese medicine, a Shiatsu specialist & practicing Tai Chi...
There is a sense of the holistic around Pascal. Having traveled the world as a model and TV presenter, she was inspired by the Far East. Now an expert in Chinese medicine, practicing Tai Chi and a certified Shiatsu specialist, her food philosophy focuses more on lifestyle than diet and her ceramics have followed suit, organic and earthy.
While making a documentary in Tunisia, Pascale came across Sabiha Ayari from Sejnane, Northern Tunisia. A ceramist hard at work, making terracotta pottery from clay extracted from the local wadis. Her handcrafted skills marked the beginning of Pascals fascination with ceramics and Pure was born.
An instant success, world famous restaurants like Bouvy and Hakkasan in London now serve their food on plates designed by Pascale. ‘Pure’ is distinguished by its colour, its organic design and vibrant glazing.
"How you eat is as important as what you eat. These bowls and dishes are made to make life easier, more pleasant and more beautiful. There’s nothing finer than a table set with large and small dishes and pots filled with delicious foods, salads and sauces from which guests can freely pick and choose. It instantly creates a relaxed ambiance where everyone decides what and how much to eat and the host or hostess is free to enjoy the evening without having to worry about allocating plates."
