Have a look at these charming Indian inspired elephant salt and pepper shakers by designer Jonathan Adler – a Christmas present from my good friend Cathy. They are a whimsical and stylish reminder of my backpacking days in Asia when I first fell in love with elephants.
I have been a big fan of Jonathan Adler since his pottery days, and love his current mix of groovy and glamorous in designs that have expanded into furniture and interiors. All his pottery is produced by artisans in his Peruvian workshop, founded through Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization that connects designers in America with artisans in developing countries to promote fair trade. Have a look at his witty about page and manifesto to understand why we love him. And, Jonathan, we agree with you – your home should make you happy. These elephants are doing a great job making our dinner table happy!
