It's in the Bag

Paper shopping bags are notorious for ripping and spilling your contents on the sidewalk at all the wrong times. But you'll never have such problems with these bags - they are really heavy-duty porcelain vases or object holders. Michel Harvey does an uncanny impression of the real thing with these handmade, everyday art sculptures that are functional, quirky and have dead-on design, right down to the creases, folds and rope handles. Available in two sizes. Handmade in Canada.

These items have been discontinued. When they sell out, they will no longer be available. Sorry, only small shopping bag is available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Michel Harvey

Creator of the whimsical ceramic kraft paper bag and glove vases, Michel Harvey compares his work to that of a magician. "Nothing in his hand, nothing up his sleeves."

Raised in Quebec City, he studied design at the University of Quebec and Ceramics at Cegep of Montreal, and he now lives in Montreal.

His technique, like a magic wand, transforms common, anonymous, everyday objects info art forms that surprise, intrigue and amuse.

His main objective is to create a work of quality which is also pleasant to own, but which is able to do more - his handcrafted porcelain vases can hold water, plants and flowers.

If he were not an artist, he says he'd be a magician - "probably as good as David Copperfield."
