Makes thrown and hand build individual pieces mainly in stoneware. High and low temperature glazes with colour pigments are used to achieve matt and fluid textures giving a wide range of pastel to strong colours.
Author of 'Resist and masking techniques'.
His work is represented many private and public collections.
Fenella talking about her work:
"In the twenty years I have been potting I still enjoy making pots on the wheel. I love the immediacy of the process and the fluidity of the material when wet. Similarly, my love affair with lead glazes, which began as a student at Goldsmith's College in the early eighties, has continued ever since, often against the prevailing wind of fashion.
More recently, a new body of work reflects a stay in the tea plantation hills of Southern India, where every view contains a dozen shades of green, each subtly different yet startlingly intense."

Contemporary Ceramics opened at Somerset House on the 20th March 2009. Fans of our previous address on Marshall Street will remember us for the variety of makers and work that was on display. Ranging from hand thrown mugs through to sculptural forms and stand-alone vessels.
Our new gallery in Somerset House provides a classical setting in which both functional ceramics and stand-alone pieces sit side by side. Although smaller than our previous venue, we aim to exhibit an interesting group of makers. In addition to our regular work we will be showing a selection of different makers each month, some of whom are new to us.
