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 my second order of this item. I plan two more as gifts. I have never seen any dishware item that can keep contents as hot as this one does. Well made and lovely, as well.

                    The Udon bowls are unique and very useful. I especially enjoy using them from eating Udon noodles to any asian cuisine, as well as soups or even as a mug. The holes and stands for the chopsticks are the best part about the bowls. Any Asian would enjoy and will enjoy.

                      Gave this to my son at George Mason University for his Ramin Noodles. You know some guys don't get to excited about dishes,but his commit was "awesome I'll use this". So anytime you can impress a 19 year old you've got a great product.

                        This bowl is larger than I expected, which was a nice surprise. I like the weight of it and the durability. It is both beautiful and functional and I really enjoy eating from it!
