Ellen’s ceramic objects are inspired by natural structures such as sand dunes, ice crystals, wood, rocks and leaves. Structures that Ishe finds and see at home and travelling. The objects have large increasingly convex surfaces accentuated with small texture elements: highly structured and chaotic at the same time. The resulting balance between what is planned and what is by chance is contained by a subtle framework that controls it. The balanced colors harmonize with the shapes. Some objects have part of the surface bladed with gold which contrast sharply with the frosted glazes. The reflected light attracts the attention of the observer. All objects are thrown upside down on the wheel. They are double hauled and are fired on 1220 oC. She will demonstrate her special throwing technique (upside down and double hauled). She will also show you how to realise the special structures on her ceramic pieces by using her tools in a special way.
