Ellen Schön Artist Statement   
My ceramic vessels are both functional and metaphorical, inspired by traditional forms from many cultures. For this exhibition, I will be showing several different series: Totems and Bottles, whose forms evoke the elongated posture of Cycladic idols; Spherical Orbs, whose swirling colored-clay surfaces suggesting planets, and 3D Clay-Printed cups and vases, fun and innovative utilitarian pottery.   
I am delighted to be participating in Newton Open Studios with my mother, Nancy Schön. Although our work is different, our passion for art is the same.   
Ellen Schön, Nancy Schön
