Ella Bendrups is a ceramic artist based in Melbourne. She utilises pinching, carving and slab building techniques to create functional and sculptural pieces with an organic feel.

Her work celebrates the maker’s touch, drawing on primitive pottery techniques and embracing evidence of process in her finished pieces.

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.
