Using traditional mould making techniques Ela’s process begins by making plaster moulds from vintage bottles or jars that she has collected. Porelaincasting slip is poured in to the moulds to produce new ceramic forms. The pieces are kiln fired at a high temperature to vitrify the clay body. The porcelain is unglazed and has a subtle, matt finish which gives the pieces a comptempoary feel. Ela produces her own designs inspired by her collections of vintage postcards, newspapers, and photos. They are reproduced onto ceramic transfer sheets which are applied to the pieces and again kiln fired for apermanent finish. All the porcelain pieces are suitable to hold water and fresh flowers but can also be complimented with Ela’s lasercut floral stems.
