Natalie Bell Colourful contemporary ceramics

Wed, November 1, 2023 - Thu, November 30, 2023

After graduating with a First Class BA (Hons) in Decorative Arts in 2018, Natalie set up her studio the following year, and launched her business in 2020 in her home town of Mansfield Woodhouse.

Natalie fell in love with ceramics during her degree after trying a range of materials and techniques throughout the three years of the multi-disciplinary course. She now creates colourful contemporary ceramics, primarily by means of slipcasting, a technique usually used in mass production, that gives Natalie the opportunity to create repetition which along with colour is a key theme within her practice. Handmade moulds are filled with stained porcelain slip which she makes inhouse. The meditative aspect of repetition that comes with slipcasting is something Natalie enjoys and the impact that colour has on a space, on people and their emotions is another aspect Natalie connects with. All pieces from Natalie’s main collection are slipcast with stained porcelain slip.

“I have a passion for colour; this shows in my work and is a very important aspect for me within my pieces. I believe colour within interiors can create a fun atmosphere and bring joy to people. My current colour selection includes a wide spectrum of colours.”
