Fenella Elm

Ceramicist Fenella Elm creates intricate and elaborate sculptures and wall pieces using thousands of individually fired ceramic scales. Her work takes inspiration from the natural world, especially the spiral shell form.

I am drawn to align strips, edges and small pieces of porcelain clay into intricate structures and textures. The work builds with the connection of similar but separate parts and the interaction that comes about through placing in formation: shifting components form a co-operative body.This year I have been placing porcelain with other materials. I have enjoyed collaborating with specialists in wood and acrylic to find interesting new material interactions.” – Artists Statement
