Give-away: Jonathan Adler Elephant

Excited to announce a very fun give-away here - a ceramic Elephant Bank by celebrated designer Jonathan Adler, famous for his mid-century inspired ceramics and lighting always with a dose of whimsy and fun.

Each piece is made by Peruvian artisans who hand craft each piece from high-fired stoneware. This Peruvian workshop was found through Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization that connects designers in America with artisans in developing countries to promote Fair Trade.


To enter the give-away, simply leave a comment below and let me know 
where you would display this charming little piece!

The winner will be selected at random and contacted after April 15th. For an additional entry, share this give-away on your Facebook or Twitter page, then leave an another comment below to let me know you did. If you do not have a blog, please leave your email address in your comment so that we can contact you if you are the lucky winner.
(Unfortunately residents of US + Canada only.)

Good luck everyone!

{ P.S An elephant with its trunk up is said to bring good luck! }

Update: the winner was Emily - congratulations + hope you enjoy the piece!

I would place this beauty in my living room on one of my tables or bookshelves. My boyfriend and I have a huge ongoing joke about elephants and I adore anything elephant decor! Especially if I can put some pennies into him for savings..

Another cute animal to add to my apparently growing collection. I'd probably put it on my bookshelf next to or near my JA lion. A little menagerie to keep my books company.

well, this is fun! i have a slight obsession with banks (not to mention JA), and this little guy would look great with the rest!

he'd hang out in the bedroom until a babe came along - total nursery material.

thanks for the giveaway!

Brittanie said...

Oh am I in love with him or what? Too cute! I would put him next to my ceramic pineapple. Both are known to bring luck, and because I'm currently looking for my future place I think he would look wonderful in my entry way.

Thank you so much for posting this giveaway!

I'm remodeling my kitchen, probably in a nook painted in our family's signature color : orange

Emily said...

This is darling! For now, it'd be in my bedroom- the safest place from my little girl. One day when we have a mantel or decent bookshelves, it will live there. Or I might give it to my best friend who likes elephants. :) emmillee(AT)gmail(dot)com

Beth said...

My best friend (who has always loved elephants) just told me she's pregnant - how cute would this be in the future nursery!!

Oh wow, he is adorable. I would LOVE to display him in my bedroom, next to my Buddha. You see, I have a red sari brought back from India hanging over my bed like a canopy, and it has an elephant and paisley print. This elephant is the perfect compliment!

cmi said...

By my window. The one of two windows that points to the street that everyone in my court must pass by. The one window that always has the thick curtains drawn hiding my room from the world. The one window that could be holding a surprise to those that cared to look for more than a glance. The one window that could really use an elephant. But only if I win. =)

Shelley said...

I would place this in one of my three built in bookcases. I think this is an awesome giveaway!

Bex said...

I LOVE JA! I've had my eye on this bad boy for a while too. It would go in our guest bedroom along with the other elephants I've collected over the years as gifts or from my travels.

Gillian Foster said...
