Tabletop: Elephant Ceramics

February 18, 2011 5:00 PM

BY Julie Carlson

Michele Michael of Elephant Ceramics lives and works between Brooklyn and Maine; a tabletop prop stylist, Michael started creating ceramics when she couldn't find the particular shades and shapes she was looking for. She incorporates the texture of homespun linen in her organically shaped pieces and takes a painterly approach to the glaze, dripping, pouring, and brushing, while also combining transparency and opaqueness.

Elephant Ceramics will be holding its first online sale on Thursday, February 24; join the mailing list for updates.
