More than her nonsensical childhood family nickname, Malka Dina is an evolving collection of home wares, jewellery and art by Brooklyn based artist Elana Noy. After a few years of visual merchandising Noy decided to design full time in 2014 following a wheel throwing class that she took in Willamsburg, stating that “I like this too much not to do it every day.”
Her latest collection for New York based retailer Still House is a step forward in the eyes of those who have a love of minimal chic. “I tend to gravitate towards natural colours” says Noy and this is evident in her collections from the natural toned textured bubble glazes of the Dew collection to the simplistic curves of the Galilei collection. The Triassic collection is sculptural and refined with a deep black glaze that is reminiscent of Japanese ceramics.
Noy also works with metal, designing a range of jewellery pieces including earrings, hair pins and rings that reference the curvature of the Galilei ceramics.
