About the work:

Domestic Talisman, Three Months II, Ceramic Sculpture by Ella Bendrups.

This original sculpture is part of Ella Bendrups’s 2021 Artist in Focus series ‘Domestic Talisman’ which follows Bendrups’ ongoing exploration of ancient clay and stone artefacts and their ability to transcend the times and cultures in which they were created. The work is handbuilt using a combination of coiling and slab building techniques with hand hammered surface texture.

The thirteen segments take inspiration from ancient bone, horn, terracotta, glass and wooden beads. A surface treatment of repetitive hammering generates a meditative mood, and emphasises the play of light across and around the bodies of the pieces.

About the Artist:

Ella Bendrups is a Naarm/Melbourne based emerging ceramic artist who creates innate forms refined for a modern context. Ella’s practice explores ancient clay and stone artefacts and their ability to transcend the times and cultures in which they were created. She embraces the expressive nature of hand building, pinching, coiling and carving clay to highlight the maker’s touch.
