'...The connection between Ellen's ceramics and photography is the strong meditative character of the works, the peace and resignation, which comes to meet us, in spite of moving surfaces, from the inside out. Moreover there is a haze of melancholy, which carries the awareness of transitoriness of the material world. Like De Chirico, the images are covered with the same fine spiritual mistiness that give the ceramic works their ritual character...' Bernd Pfannkuche, editor and critic ('Ceramics and the Caribbean', Neue Keramik, March/April 2002, page 20-23; translated from German)
