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?”

                Just loved the style and size of the product. I know my daughter will love it. I found others online for a lesser price but not nearly the quality and size of these so I was willing to pay a little more for the quality and convenience.

                  These bowls are neat. They are easy to hold, with the handle and the way the bowl is designed. Only issue is, when the noodles are hot, it's difficult to hold on the bottom. Due to it being ceramic, it heats. Overall, these bowls are magnificant. They hold quite a bit of food.

                  Great for movie nights with food at the TV. Nice and big for holding snacks.
                  One bad thing is it gets too hot on the outside to hold comfortably.
