Ella Bendrups — Tall Black Clay 'Calliope' 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.
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 black 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. 29.5cm x 9cm
