Handmade Objects

Handmade Objects

Partnering with contemporary ceramicists from around the world, Elte has commissioned small batches of one-of-a-kind ceramics to create the Handmade Objects Collection. Every piece is made without the use of molds or casts, each reflecting the hand of its maker.

Award-Winning ceramicist Caroline Blackburn uses a combination of colour and texture to achieve a painterly surface
"Each art work is made by hand. It starts with throwing a form on the wheel and then working intuitively through hand building until it is complete."

- Caroline Blackburn
