‘There is no doubt that a flamboyant dinner display can be a work of art. And the most important component – the queen of the table – should always be the centrepiece.
My Plateaux are centrepieces for our era. Historically these objects were made to be admired and discussed by the guests and, in imperial courts, by an invited audience and sometimes crowds of onlookers as well.’ Charlotte Birnbaum
