Ella Bendrups — Medium 'Calliope' Sculptural Vase in Black
Ella Bendrups is a ceramic artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Utilising solely hand-building techniques, Ella creates innate forms refined for a modern context.
With a background in styling supported by studies in Communication Design and Interior Design and Decoration at RMIT University, Ella began social ceramics classes in late 2015 before progressing to a self-led explorative practice.
Ella hand-builds each of her pieces in a home studio, working on one small group of related pieces at a time.
A faceted single handled bottle, Calliope is a modern interpretation of ancient Greek forms and part of the Muses series. Each piece is hand coiled and smoothed prior to being faceted. The white raku clay has been treated with a Liquid Quartz sealer.
Ideal for use as an art object or vase. Please note it is always recommended to place ceramic pieces on a trivet or runner to protect surfaces from potential damage, especially when being used as a vase.
Materials: black clay
Dimensions: approx. 21cm x 7.5cm
