The elph ceramics philosophy centres on high-quality Australian made production with a focus on sustainability at our core. Eloise, co-founder and our head of production, is a classically trained ceramic artist and by embracing this traditional craft we are able to ensure it survives as a manufacturing process in Australia.

Trimming is a significant part of our process. Not only is it one of the ways we make our products so light, it is also mesmerising to watch! All our trimmings are reclaimed and recycled to be made into new pots 🌿 Discover more about our studio at elphceramics.com or visit our Paddington store.

As the weather cools down and we're enjoying being inside, there's nothing nicer than a generous mug. This one by Alessandro Di Sarno is our favourite for an afternoon cup of tea (with a biscuit or two!) 🍪⁠

elph journal. How are handmade ceramics made part 2: hand-building.

Hand-building refers to a multitude of making techniques which predominately use hands to create. In contrast to throwing on the wheel, hand-building is a slower way of forming the clay into your desired shape. Discover more in our latest post on elph journal, online and in your inboxes now.

About us

elph store has been lovingly curated as a beautiful and bespoke retail space by sisters, Eloise and Sophie, and their mother, Belinda. Inspired by family gatherings and the joy of sharing meals and time together, we hope our collection will enhance your everyday as well as any special occasion.

Eloise is our resident ceramic artist and maker of our elph ceramics range. Eloise completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at National Art School in 2014. Since graduation, Eloise has been exhibiting her artwork and making the elph ceramics range. The elph range is made in elph studio, which is tucked behind elph store.

Sophie brings a love and appreciation for good design having graduated from UTS in 2012 with a Bachelor of Industrial Design. Sophie spent many years working in the Interior Design space and a keen eye for high quality, beautiful design.

Both of Eloise and Sophie's love of interiors, ceramics and beautiful homewares comes from their mother, Belinda.
