Become One with Your Bowl

Its comforting shape washed in soothing color, this dish brings a touch of tranquility to your daily routine. Who knows-maybe you'll find enlightenment in your morning latte. Created by Elan McPherson. Handmade in southern California.

Made in California

“I painted rocks and would sell them on the most rural road you can imagine. My parents would pay the neighbors to come buy from me. You name it I would dream it.”

Some passions manifest themselves early on. Such was the case for Elan McPherson, who from childhood could be found experimenting with both pottery and entrepreneurship. “I painted rocks and made rock men and would then sell them on the most rural road you can imagine,” she recalls.

Though her career initially led her to work on restaurant interiors and then a line of furniture, it wasn’t long before Elan veered back into ceramics, hand-glazing and embellishing a line of North American-made kitchen accessories. As colorful as they are clever, her designs (noodle bowls with built-in chopstick pockets, plates equipped with handy thumb handles) frequently prompt the reaction she most likes to hear: “Why didn’t I think of that?”

            We bought a couple of these bowls for soups and oatmeal. Love the design and quality. We've been washing them in the dishwasher without issue. Will be adding a few more to the cupboard.

                I was so excited to buy this bowl but terribly disappointed my first time using it! It's simply
                too hot to hold as designed when filled with anything hot! So what's the point??

                    So easy to hold. One giving as gift to cousin with very bad arthritis in both hands. Good size for soup and snacks. Nice to have a handle.
