About

The lively and colourful beasts painted onto ceramic dishes featured in this show have been conceived as partners to the adjoining Myths & Monsters exhibition. Bath-based artist Bronwyn Williams-Ellis has always drawn, painted and had an interest from an early age in using clay. Her career started by moving into the landscape where she built a massive kiln to fire substantial slab-built figures and pieces for the garden.

Always interested in early art and archaeology, it was during a visit to the Alhambra palace in Spain that she became excited by colour and drawing on surface-decorated ceramics, a very different tradition to that of making pots. She particularly enjoys the softness, richness of colour and the textures when working in earthenware, using combinations of low-fired clays, coloured slips and highlights of glaze.
