Ellen Ehk Åkesson的陶瓷作品兼具功能和雕塑性。形态常常是容易识别的碗，盘，盆等等，近些年雕塑性和象征性逐渐加强。使用粘土转轮和切割刀对粘土进行体态雕琢，用双手将泥改头换面，成为人类所需之物。
The direct touch of the material gives me the insights and inspiration I search for in order to make a totally imagined object. I’m inspired by the physical act of doing, like the repetitive work at the potter´s wheel, the rolling of the clay, the cutting of the knife through the clay. I’ve studied how forms grow in nature, how elements link to one another and how that process creates the final form. I try to use that same method while creating my ceramic art.
There is a long tradition of working with clay and I enjoy being a part of it. The raw unrefined materials and hands are the primary tools. There is something satisfying about taking a lump of clay and transforming it into something more sophisticated. I think it fills a basic human need.”
