two-hands work: ceramic sculpture

Passion -and a thirst for essence- to find a way to express outwardly in her work what is felt inside...
In the brief time l have known Elizabeth Ross, these are the qualities that reveal themselves most immediately to me, both in person and in her work, She is someone who takes living seriously, who wants to get the most of her time in this world -someone for whom art-making, most particularly with clay this far, but with increasingly broad parameters, is perhaps the most logical and rewarding way to pursue this passion.
Elizabeth has a direct, visceral relationship with clay, a great respect for its possibilities as a vehicle of expression. It is not only of earth, it is earth. This is of major importance for her because by its very character as a material, clay is naturally designed to receive the touch of the maker, record it throughout the process of creation and remember it when that process is complete. The maker's signature is there, visible in the form and surface of the material for all to see, in the presence of the work.
