Claire Ellis Ceramics

Claire Ellis is a Canadian-born emerging ceramic artist. While working as a chef at the world-renowned Melbourne restaurant Attica in 2019, Ellis began making tableware for the tasting menu as part of the creative development team.

During the COVID-19 lock-down in 2020 she established Attica Studio Ceramics within the restaurant. In 2021 she founded Claire Ellis Ceramics. Ellis’ chef experience influences her work through a focus on raw materials and experimentation.
