Making an Impression
Elephant Ceramics is an earthy, tactile collection of pottery conceived of by stylist and Manhattan tabletop prop house owner Michele Michael. She achieves the look by pressing traditional homespun linen into the irregularly-shapen clay pieces and then organically drips or brushes on glazes for a raw but sensual finish on every piece. Loving blue as I do, the collection's peacock glazes immediately caught my eye, but pottery puritans will love the white pieces just as much. Crazy thing is that this well-connected stylist and propper already sold out her first batch long ago, so she's back in Red Hook shaping and glazing away to offer up collection #2 in April. Add your name to her mailing list to be notified of availability and then be sure to act quickly!
