Homeware Secrets is proud to bring to you this fantastic range of crockery featured on current and past episodes of MasterChef Australia and Everyday Gourmet with Justine Schofield.
Santo Alessi is formerly known as Elischer Pottery founded in 1947. It remembers the world-renowned genius sculptor John (Johann Wolfgang) Elischer, who in partnership with his son inspired a dream that shaped the future of Australian pottery.
John Elischer was born in Vienna and later trained at the academy of Vienna. This was before studying under the famous sculptor August Rodin.
After migrating to Australia in 1935, Elischer received commissions for sculptures including the King George V Memorial in Bendigo (1938), a bronze fountain for Sir Russell Grimwade in Toorak and a bust of Archbishop Mannix for Newman College, University of Melbourne. In 1951 Elischer won the 200 guinea prize for his design of a jubilee medal. Another of his notable sculptures is a bust of the Australian television great Graham Kennedy.
Elischer’s innovative designs and creative vision continues today as “Santo Alessi” Victoria, Australia. We never forget our heritage and focus to create contemporary works of art with flair, passion and creativity.

“We inspect every item by hand to ensure that each piece lives up to our high standards as well as those our customers have come to expect from Santo Alessi. Irregularities and variation in the glaze color, texture, size and finish are inherent and should be expected due to the handcrafted nature of our pieces. We feel that these characteristics only add to the natural beauty and unique quality of our products and are in no way to be considered flaws, that’s our belief anyway.”
