Fenella's fascination with nature and the structure of organisms has led her to align small pieces, strips and edges into intricate designs and textures. She rarely works on something that has only one component as the work is based on the interaction of similar but separate parts and the formations that develop.
There are technical challenges in this work which in its own way leads to new directions in the making, handling, firing, mounting and presenting the work. She works with porcelain because of its hardness and glowing translucent quality.
The making process is a practice carried over from previous psychoanalytical work: putting all the preparation aside and keeping an open mind, attentive but not forced, available to the work’s potential, allowing the unexpected and placing trust in the process.
