The technique of workmanship is the same adopted thousands of years ago by the creative genius of man, who starts to mold common useful objects from the earth, while at the same time satisfying the primary need of beauty.
In   the   same   way,  Ellen G.   models   her
sculptures in clay starting off with the idea of the container – vase, pitcher, box – and then, using her own imagination, departs from that form, transforming the characteristics of the object to the extent that they almost dominate its original function. After the first baking, the terracotta work is colored with special polychrome enamels, combined and composed so as to confer to the surface a vivid brightness and a singular mélange effect, played out by particular chromatic variations, resulting from research and experimentation.
