An affinity with ceramics

  • • Rosella bought her first pottery wheel in 1996 after a course in Wales
  • • She studied ceramics at The City and Guilds of London Institute
  • • She opened her studio, Space for Clay, in 2011

Specialised in throwing on the pottery wheel, Rosella Schembri’s clay-shaping talents and studio, Space for Clay, earned her the Crafts Initiative Award from the Malta Crafts Council. Inspired by the people who walk through her studio doors as well as by nature and trees, Rosella attentively crafts ceramics that seek to convey unique feelings each time they are used. Her journey began in the early 1990s, when she took a ceramics course led by local master, Anna Ciavola, and from then on, she has remained committed to her explorations of this versatile creative medium. Her experiences in the United Kingdom and Malta, where she has both lived, worked, and participated in collective exhibitions and events has influenced her style. She is committed to conveying her love for clay and the beauty it has the potential to express.
