Fenella Elms’ Studio is based on the edge of the Wiltshire Downs in the heart of the British countryside. She first discovered working with clay when she was taught to throw by a school teacher who enthusiastically took her class to visit a Lucy Rie exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1981.
She sought out workshops and classes over the years until she was given a wheel in 2004, which quickly led her to study for an Art Foundation and HNC in ceramics at Swindon College in 2008. Fenella has undertaken numerous international public and private commissions, and her work has been purchased for exhibition in both museum and privately held collections.
