YSP is an international centre for modern and contemporary sculpture. It is an independent charitable trust and registered museum, situated in the 18th century Bretton Hall estate in West Yorkshire.
Ella visited YSP throughout the seasons, documenting aspects of the 500-acre Park through sketched impressions and photography, to create ‘Ella Doran for YSP’.
The collection comprises two designs. ‘Ella Doran for YSP: Through the Camera Lens’ features photographs of the landscape – including a canopy of leaves and tree bark – applied to a tea towel, tote bag, apron, cushion, trays and mugs. ‘Ella Doran for YSP: Brushstrokes’ is a colourful pattern, mirroring the movement of the lakes and plants at YSP, which features on a shopping bag, tea towel, apron, mug, tray, cushion, coaster, placemat, chopping board and umbrella.
Ella is a designer who uses her own photography and textile design skills to create a wide range of items, from products and fabrics to large-scale environmental graphics.
Her work includes commissions for The Royal Society of Arts, Kew Royal Botanic Gardens, Tate, The John Radcliffe Hospital, The Royal London Hospital, Paloma Picasso and Portmeirion.
