Made in California

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?”

    Comments about UncommonGoods Udon Noodle Bowls:

    These are great. They are a great size. I was afraid they would be too small. Probably holds something like 1.5 cups. My only complaint is that one has a minor glazing flaw and one has a chopstick groove that is too small.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Udon Noodle Bowls:

          I mostly use the product for ramen and sometimes fried rice. I like that you can stuff up your bowl then lay it aside with the chopsticks and sit back for a while before you pick at it again. sometimes it's a little awkward holding, but honestly, it's not that bad at all. Quite sturdy and doesnt feel like a cheap plastic.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I bought this bowl for a friend and he enjoys it mucho! The delivery was very prompt (3 days) and that was great as it was a christmas gift.

            This was a gift for my partner (and myself) for a 2yr anniversary. They were a huge hit. I bought 2 of the black noodle bowls and we have used them daily since for soup, noodle, and TitKoonYum tea. If held correctly the heat does not translate to your hand but the belly of the bowl does get very hot. Also to note, is the quality of the chopsticks which are basic plastic chopsticks one might find at a restaurant.

                bought four of these for college-age daughters & nieces! Being that Ramen Noodles are a "staple" of their diet, all 4 girls absolutely loved the style & practicality that these will bring to their dorm!

                Service and delivery comments:

                very pleased with the inclusion of so much packaging! The breakables were well-protected!

                Likewise, the overall appeal of the packaging was a surprise! My very curious daughters described these as "perfect Christmas presents" (the kind of package that you would draw in a picture!)
