Elke le Roux
Elke le Roux Green & Gold Thin Leaf
Every pair of ceramic earrings that comes from Elke's kiln has been handmade and uniquely crafted for a bespoke look. Featuring modern geometric designs, these wearable pieces of modern art are shaped from 100% South African porcelain or black stoneware. She cuts, shapes and designs each pair from wet porcelain/stoneware clay, and then fire it at 1000°C.
Once it comes out of the oven, the earrings are sanded individually and hand-painted with underglazes, oxides and two carat gold lustre, fired three times throughout the course of creation. This results in smooth, matte porcelain earrings with a shiny gold glaze, which is affixed to a sterling silver post for secure and sterile wear.
As each item is hand-made and fired at extremely high temperatures the colour and detail of line-work on the product may vary slightly to that seen on the website.
