About The Wheel
Artfully prepared cuisine deserves an equally artful presentation. That’s the house specialty at The Wheel.
The Wheel was founded in 1988 by Michael Totah as a boutique gallery for one-of-kind creations. The company’s early success came via Southern California galleries and organized art shows with the Leucadia Art Association.
In 1991, however, The Wheel changed course and began catering to the culinary arts marketplace. Totah started with a custom line of Asian themed dinnerware for the Hyatt La Jolla’s Café Japengo. The highly successful partnership led to designing dinnerware for other dining and resort establishments.
With growing popularity and professional sales representation, The Wheel’s artistic plateware became introduced to a broader audience of banquet applications and high end restaurants.
Today, The Wheel continues to design and deliver top-quality, handcrafted stoneware that graces the tables and buffets of leading chefs and renowned resorts.
The Wheel’s ongoing mission is to provide custom stoneware to complement any culinary presentation.
