Natalie Busch is the designer behind Elaver; a small collection of hand built, one of a kind ceramic pieces. She first discovered her inclination towards clay when she was 12 while working with a neighbor in their studio. She continued to study ceramics in workshops and school, while also pursuing studies in printmaking, but has recently returned to the medium she gravitates towards the most. Her collection is influenced by textures found in natural settings and the designs and aesthetic of the Ndebele, Berber, and northern hill tribes of Thailand. She gathers inspiration from travel, adventure, dinner parties, and time with her kind and dear friends.
