Wainwright created his first collection of tableware in 1991, the same year he founded his company. What started as a childhood joy has evolved into a lifelong passion for creating functional works of art. Wainwright’s mastery at combining porcelain, bone china and glass with precious metal is a reflection of his experience as both a sculptor and a jeweler. By 1995 Wainwright’s collections were being sold in national and independent luxury goods stores across the country. Today, Michael Wainwright Inc. has evolved from a one-man operation to a well-established presence in the luxury goods marketplace.
