elsa+sam offers only the highest quality decorative and functional dishware direct from independent designers in North America and Europe. Every product in our shop is individually crafted with your appreciation in mind - no small feat in these times of mass-production and warehouse pricing. Yet we believe that simplicity still yields the highest quality. Our ceramics are hand thrown and decorated by the same gifted artists who design them. Our glassware is blown and molded in the inventive studios where it is first imagined. Look closely. These are not common objects for common homes. This is art made by extraordinary people.
