‘Things by Bea’ is a playful range of ceramic homewares and jewellery, handcrafted by your's truely, Bea Bellingham. I try to create distinctive illustrations, patterns and designs focus on bringing fun and humour into our everyday environments.
Created predominantly in porcelain, each ceramic item is lovingly hand-moulded and hand-painted by me. With an emphasis on creating delightfully askew and perfectly imperfect results, each piece is a truly unique work. The owner is able to experience the textures and brushstrokes that formed their new item, knowing they are the only person to own that exact form and pattern.
I work from my studio in Petersham, Sydney with the aid of my not-so-helpful studio assistant, Buddy the dog. Inspiration for designs comes quite organically, be it through doodles of energetic fun patterns, or letting the clay guide the form of a vessel.
