These beautiful mountain bells were made especially for Òr by Ella Bua- In. Each bell has been covered in playful drawings of birds flying over mountains, all individually hand painted by Ella in oxide blue.
They are wheel thrown and each have have a working chime which rings out beautifully when shaken. They all come with a recycled silk ribbon to hang on your Christmas tree or around your home at any time of the year.
Ella's work is intended to be tactile and imperfect, pieces which have been made to be handled and loved. Storytelling is central to Ella's practice; she uses ceramic oxides to illustrate her pots, making reference to a wide range of sources including Ancient Greek and Roman pottery, folk tales and myths, as well as traditional brushwork techniques and botanical studies.
Ella taught herself to pot after painting her way through a BA in Fine Art. She now lives in Cardigan, West Wales with her family.
Each bell is hand drawn in oxide by Ella, therefore the one you receive may vary slightly to the one shown, in design and colouring. The bells themselves have also been handmade so the shape, size and and colour may vary. Approximately 6cm high and 8cm wide. The ribbon may also vary.
