Angela Mellor was born in Cheshire. She studied Art & Design at Manchester University and in 1984 specialised in porcelain with Peter Lane at the University of East Anglia. She later developed her work in bone china with Sasha Wardell in France. Her work has developed alongside her teaching in England over twenty years.
In 1994, Angela moved to Perth, Australia and set up a studio to work full time on her ceramics.
She received an Honourable Mention in the 5th and 6th International Ceramics Competition in Japan (1998 & 2002), and also in the 1st World Ceramic Biennale Korea (2001).
Angela returned to England in 2006 where she set up the Angela Mellor Gallery in Ely, Cambs where she exhibited her own work as well as other leading British and International artists in varying media. She has recently closed the gallery to permanently concentrate on her ceramic work.
Angela's work has been included in international publications and is represented in public and private collections internationally.
