Meri Wells

Elected RCA 2007

Member of the International Academy of Ceramics, Meri Wells is a sculptor working in mid-Wales. She says "The small ceramic figures come out of the hedge that I can see from the window. They march past reviving forgotten imagery of childhood stories and our cultural myths. The larger, often lifesize, sculptural pieces, are, I
believe, a result of disillusionment with how we repeatedly fail to sustain a functional society. So I based these on forms which inhabit a parallel universe and often they are self portraits."
