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?”

      This is a must have for every hip ramen-eating high-school or college student. It's completely practical but has enough of a special stylish edge that it makes a great gift.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The website indicated this item was backordered but that it would arrive before Christmas. And just as promised, it did. This was my first experience with Uncommon Goods, and they earned my trust. I would definitely order with them again (in fact I already did).

      Very pretty piece of pottery, like the spaces for the chopsticks. The major downside is the handle, it's very thin and difficult to get a comfortable grip.

          One of the most useful items I have seen. I have arthritis and this not only is easy to hold but the warmth coming through the bowl reduces joint pain in my hands. It's wonderful and therapeutic. I've been a nurse for 25 years...I ought to know!

              This bowl was purchased as a Christmas present for my daughter who eats a lot of asian food. I opened the package before I wrapped it and was impressed with the design and practicality of it. I know she will love it and the chop sticks are an extra special touch.
