Ellie Dietrich, studio potter

Ellie began making pots in 1970 creating functional wheel thrown stoneware. She currently works in stoneware and porcelain and fires to cone 6 in oxidation. When throwing on the wheel, she feels compelled to alter the shapes in some way to interrupt a piece’s symmetry and accentuate the fluid lines and form.
Although she still does some wheel-thrown work, her current passion is working with large hand-rolled slabs of clay; drawn to the tactile and fluid quality of the clay and its response to touch.  A thin piece of clay is like handling a piece of fabric.   Slabs are rolled into cylinders to form functional forms, such as vases and cups, or sculptural forms such as simple figures for placement in the garden.  A variety of found or constructed objects are also used for slump or drape molds to form platters and shallow bowls.
