Chela Edmunds is the talented maker behind Takeawei ceramics, a line of beautiful and useful objects in clay. Chela, originally from Queensland, received a BA in textile design from RMIT in 2007 before moving to New York to work as a fashion textile designer for DKNY and Vera Wang brands. Fuelled by a desire to get back to nature and a more organic form of design, Chela started making ceramics in 2011. She returned to Melbourne in 2012 to concentrate on making and return to the landscape that inspires her. Each piece is lovingly designed and manufactured by hand at Danaher Lane Studios, an artist’s studio space in North Melbourne.
