Meri Wells studied art and drama in the University of Wales Aberystwyth and continues to work in theatre design, education and ceramics. Her studio and workshop is in a beautiful old house in Aberhosan near Machynlleth where she produces both raku and wood-fired figurative sculptures using clays, some of which she digs locally. Part human, part animal or bird, her creatures suggest emotions and tensions that lie under the surface of all human relationships.

These figures are hand-modelled stoneware and coloured with slips and oxides to give the subtle colourings which are enhanced by the effects of the wood-fired kiln.
