About the Artist

Ellen Blomgren, a lifelong Bristol resident, runs a busy clay studio with locations in Warren and Pawtucket called Mudstone Studios. The studio will celebrate 17 years in business this September. Mudstone offers classes and studio space for people who want to work in the ceramics medium. Classes include pottery, hand-building and sculpting while members have access 24/7 to work on their own projects.

Mrs Blomgren worked for 8 years instructing ceramics at RISD in the CE program and has been instrumental in the opening of two local artist co-ops Made In Warren and Hotpoint Emporium in Bristol.

Ellen lives with her wonderful husband and partner in life, Carl as well as her Mother Judy, also a life-long Bristol resident. Her hobbies include her Pugs, gardening, wax sculpting for casting in metal and is brand new to Pickleball!
