Message from the Artist: "Pottery has been unbelievably rewarding for me. Seeing my tableware in daily use makes it all fall into place. I like to imagine my pots stacked in the dishwasher -- sturdy, dirty and well-used. They can be used for a Thanksgiving dinner, mid-week takeout or morning cereal."  You can reach Ellen at
