Ellen Schon

I like the idea that although this looks like it could be more, this in the end is just a ceramic vessel, like common other works. This artist strives to have the vessels be something beyond itself and to function as a metaphor. It looks like it's made more for the eye rather than to have a purpose which in this  case I think is good. Exploring the territory of vessels and how far you can go and have it still be a vessel form is a really cool idea to me.
