There is something about the organic almost clumsy nature of the Elso Collective vases. They have a beautiful warmth about them, imperfect and not in any way uptight, almost as if they just grew out of the earth like this.
Unique item, only one.

ABOUT THE MAKER:
Elena Strohfeldt is an Australian artist based in Melbourne. She is self-taught and started working with ceramics in 2020, as a way to work through her anxiety during the lockdown.
The outside world guides her art. What triggers her creativity could be as small as a flower or as big as a building. She never begins with a vision in mind, she lets her emotions and hands guide her through the process. That is when the magic happens. The clay is her way of telling a story.
Her dream is to wake up every day and do what she loves: ceramics.
