Adela Powell

The shoreline has always been a source of delight and inspiration to Adela`s work.

Eroded textures inspired by the littoral are incorporated serendipitously into her abstract forms.

The pieces are constructed using different hand building techniques.

Many layers of slips, oxides, glazes and sometimes sand and pebbles from various beaches complete the forms.

The work is made using stoneware clay and fired to 1250 degrees centigrade.

Feeling the love

We spent some time looking for someone who could produce some solid wooden frames to mount our medals in. James, listened carefully to what we wanted and made us the exact high-quality frame we needed. Since then, we re-order every couple of weeks including some complex bespoke frames. We have been working together for about 10 years and I couldn’t recommend The Framing Centre highly enough.

Artmill Gallery & Framing Centre are our go to framers for The Arts Institute, University of Plymouth. They have a particular empathy for artists requirements and always produce work to the highest quality. Many of our exhibiting artists have been so impressed with the outcome that they go on to use Artmill for all their work.
