An Audience with Ceramicist Fenella Elms

Fenella is a skilled maker who you will all know from the spectacular Flow Pot acquired by the Art Gallery in 2015. She first discovered working with clay when taught to throw by a school teacher who took the class out to see a Lucy Rie exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum in 1981. She says ‘Aspects of my past career in mental health continue to influence my work with clay: the subconscious approach, a sense of rhythm, attention to detail and difference. I don’t seek to put my experiences into the clay, but marvel at how they emerge.’
