About the Artist: Ella is an award winning Pewter smith. She is a traditionally trained Silversmith, studying at Buckinghamshire University. She describes being introduced to Pewter during her second year, as love at first hammer. She works out of her studio at the Manchester Craft and Design Centre. Using techniques which have been passed down through generations of makers, Ella loves the sense of history, of connection with previous makers of years ago. This mix of ‘old’ combined with stripped back, embellishment-free contemporary design is what excites her.
