Some pics and text from solo exhibition at Mr Kitly Gallery November last year...

A lamp, a rug, a pot, a plant, freedom, flowers, a champagne bottle on the balcony as an ashtray. It's all you need. 

"I feel the need to express something, but I don't know what it is I want to express. Or how to express it." Joey 

"I think it's exquisite." Eve

Ceramics absorbs human beauty. My hands crack and bleed, my nails split, clay dust fills my hair and skin, I spend my days in a tracksuit covered in glaze, slip, plaster, and dust. Throughout this process my pots seem to be becoming more glamorous, more sophisticated - as though I am some how imparting traits through my fingers and into their body. They have taken up smoking, are wearing make-up, and lounging around interiors all languorous, indulgent and decorative.

Named for the 1978 Woody Allen film of the same title, Interiors is a celebration of female relationships and the living space that these play out in.

A New Year...

Wishing everyone a fantastic 2014! 

I can't believe I managed to go an entire year without updating my blog - I was a little distracted by Instagram it seems. There is a New Year's Resolution in the works to ensure it doesn't happen again, AND very excited to have commenced work on a dedicated website!!

I always photograph my new colour combinations, and the quickest way to do this effectively in my studio was to simply hold the pieces and take a quick snap. A lot ended up on Instagram, so my hand got a lot of airplay last year! Here is a selection, featuring the spotted collection...

Naomi Eller - Nothing is set in stone

Naomi Eller
Nothing is set in stone
21 November - 9 December 2012

"Adam and Eve are the generic representations of man and woman, the snake as a force of life, death and choice. The use of the three fates through many cultures each control aspects of our time on Earth. Birds since the time of antiquity have been the ethereal beings, the divinities."

Ancient artifacts beautifully crafted from ceramic in the 21st century studio of Naomi Eller.
