Susan Williams-Ellis, ‘An Eclectic’

Sunday, 14 October to Sunday, 4 November 2018

Susan Williams-Ellis is best known for her Portmeirion Pottery but there is more to her artistic life than the innovative ceramics. At different times in her career Susan found artistic expression in commissioned and non-commissioned illustration, in painting, in clothes, fabric and furniture design, and even in masks. She left a vast amount of sketches and various items which inspired her work, all of which throw light and shade on her life as the first-born child of landed and eminent parents, and as an individual striving to find her voice.
