Ella Bendrups

Ella Bendrups — Smallest Dark Terracotta 'Solcare' Vase | Sculpture


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. 

'Solcare' Series

Named in Italian after the verb to plow, the 'Solcare' series combines a timeless base form with a surface texture reminiscent of the furrowed earth in a cultivated field. Each piece is hand coiled and smoothed prior to being combed to achieve the distinctive surface texture. The dark terracotta 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: dark terracotta clay

Dimensions: approx. 10.5cm x 6cm
