made by hand: elephant ceramics…
Posted in handmade, homewares February 15th, 2011 by pia

How exquisite is this new range of porcelain and ceramic ware by Michele Micheal?  She incorporates the texture of homespun linen into the clay, and uses a series of painterly techniques like brushing, dripping and pouring for glazing. I adore the deep blue color palette and the organic, raw shapes. Without doubt this range will be used a-plenty in upcoming photo shoots around the world. Congrats Michele!

    so so so lovely – coincidently I just pinned these very same dishes on my Pinterest board so recognised them straight away. The colours are just fabulous – and the texture too. Perfect and blue.
