A Ceramicist at Home in Brooklyn

Michele Michael of Elephant Ceramics takes us on a tour of her cheery Red Hook, Brooklyn, apartment, with a recently remodeled kitchen and appealing splashes of color. A couple of years ago, Michael and her husband, children's book author and illustrator Patrick Moore, decided their kitchen needed an overhaul. "We cook all the time, and we needed more counter space and more storage," Michael says. They reconfigured the space to create an open floor plan with a freestanding work counter; Moore, who is a skilled carpenter, designed and built the cabinetry using marine-grade plywood with a white laminate. Throughout the apartment, Michael's own organically shaped ceramics with painterly glazes add dashes of color and texture.
