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 & 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. She utilises a combination of pinching, carving and slab building techniques to create both functional and sculptural pieces with an organic feel. Ella celebrates the maker's touch, embracing evidence of process in her finished work.
