“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?”

Brings TV dinners to a whole new level!

The handle is great, makes the plate so easy to hold in one hand. Great for a recent outdoor party, makes it easy to walk around with a plate. Also great for those times when you just want to sit on the couch and watch TV. It's a little pricey, but the quality and construction are spot-on, so you cannot miss. Safe for the dishwasher, but I prefer to wash by hand, as others in my house don't know how to load a dishwasher properly and I'd be very sad to lose this new find!

Only One Major Disappointment

5

The single disappointment a buyer might experience with this chic, functional, unpretentious, thoroughly unique plate is that once one opens the box and sees the genius of the product, one immediately wants to kick one's self for not having the foresight to double or possibly triple one's original order. Perhaps slightly smaller than dinner-plate size, there is absolutely nothing like this anywhere else. Again, the sheer genius of the design is immediately obvious. Highest quality, gloriously fast service, and an incredible value.
