As a metalsmith, I have a definite appreciation for functional artwork. What could be better than a beautiful object you can use in your everyday life? I also have a definite appreciation for ceramics artists, mainly because I have no talent whatsoever for ceramics. That's why Studio Elan is one of my favorite Etsy shops. The shop's motto says it all... "Functional Stoneware Pottery with Flair."
At Studio Elan, you can find a wide range of functional ceramic objects, from elegantly simple garlic graters and spoon rests to artistic treasure jars, all made with impeccable craftsmanship. I personally love the wonderful rich colors of the glazes and the beautifully proportioned forms of the pieces. Studio Elan is truly a one of a kind shop, and I highly recommend it not only for the quality of the work, but also for excellent customer service.
