Last fall I featured some artwork that I spotted at ‘wichcraft in NYC. Since then a few people have asked me about the artist but unfortunately I had no idea who painted this very cool extra large muffin tin…
Park Ave. muffin tin, Steve Ellis
But I do now!
After a bit of investigative work (i.e., a few emails sent to ‘wichcraft) I learned that all the artwork in ‘wichcraft locations is by NYC-based artist and art instructor Steve Ellis. The series, entitled Tools of the Craft was commissioned by ‘wichcraft in 2006. Some of Mr. Ellis’ prints are available for purchase here (prices range from $150-$800).

Many thanks to Lauren P. at ‘wichcraft for helping me out.
I really like Steve’s work and it’s so great to see more of it today- I am so impressed with his talent. The muffin tin really is outstanding, and I also love the percolator.
