Zell Osbourne

Zell Osbourne trained in Biochemistry, obtaining a Degree from University College Cardiff in 1974. She worked as a research assistant for a year, before her love for Art finally took over and she returned to Cardiff College of Art where she obtained a first class Degree in Ceramics in 1979.

For number of years she ran a pottery studio in her native count of Cornwall, in the United Kingdom. She then decided to spend some time teaching and returned to college in 1985 to take a P.G.A.T. course. She spent three months as an Artist-in-Residence at Llandrindod-Wells High School, followed by another six months as an artist-residence at the Psychiatric Day Hospital at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

Her first exhibition in Malta was at the Museum of Fine Arts in 1986 followed by a second in 1988. Since then, she has settled permanently in Malta and held a solo exhibition at St. James Cavalier and taken part in many collective ones. She has also produced ceramic murals for various hotels and restaurants as well as trophies for various organizations.

Her inspirations vary from marine and microscopic life, natural formations in sand and rock, African art, and arms and armoury. Between 1989 - 2005 ran the Art/Pottery studio at Ir-Razzett tal-Hbiberija (The Park of Friendship), which is a leisure centre for the disabled in Malta.

During the scholastic year 1995/96 taught ceramics at the Institute of Visual Arts, Valletta, Malta. Left Ir-Razzett tal-Hbiberija in July 2005 and started teaching day modelling classes at the St James Cavalier and own studio in Sliema, Malta.[1]
