About The Artisan

Hey Blue Handmade is the work of Ellen Schiller, a New England maker, mama, and former book publishing nine-to-fiver. 

She has developed techniques and tricks for manifesting unique shapes and forms that truly set her work apart. 

Ellen loves to experiment with new plant dyes and materials, but her favorite part of the day is sitting down to sew, anticipating what forms will take shape with each mesmerizing spiral. 

Occasionally you come across a gifted artisan, someone whose talents make what might otherwise look ordinary into something extraordinary - a work of art.  

The baskets and containers Ellen makes from simple American made rope combine both highly functional and practical use with something that will make every visitor to your home stop and take notice.

Practical everyday works of art.
