Elke Lucas has set up her ceramics studio in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast in Australia where she makes wheel thrown, high-fired porcelain. The decoration on the pots is minimal, using natural oxides, which allows the elegant shapes and the quality of the porcelain body to shine through resulting in pots that have a natural sophistication and a beautiful quiet presence.

The König Gold range is inspired by memories of Elke’s treasured studded white leather belt she wore as a teenager in the 80s after punk had finally reached her sleepy Black Forest village. Featuring raised dimples of clay under the glaze, hand decorated with real gold this new range is a sensual and visual delight. Elke loves to see the look of delight and surprise on peoples faces when they hold the pieces for the first time.
