elaine's beautiful plate (was: butterscotch transparent)

Dear Ellen,

You beat me to the punch! I too was going to post our fellow
Clayarters about Elaine Coleman's "butterscotch transparent" plate on page 14 of the
June/July/Aug issue of Ceramics Monthly. "Luscious" is an understatement in my
mind... I still can't stop looking at this Geil ad and drooling at her work...
truly a gorgeous glaze indeed! I was wondering if I wasn't the only Clayarter
who wasn't astounded by this photograph of Elaine's work.

The glaze looks almost as if it is a slight satiny matt or semi-matt... I
just want to reach out and run my fingers over it and feel it... touch it... it's
beautiful... and I love how it breaks just like a celedon... in all the
carved recessed areas.

Signed...

"hopelessly addicted" to clay...

Hello Ellen and Ken,

You can see some more "luscious" examples of her work at the following
website. One of those pieces uses her butterscotch glaze as well.

Thank you for sharing that website with us Chris... what a great selection of
work from not only Elaine & Tom... but other notables as well... I really
enjoyed my online gallery tour I just took... I REALLY liked Otto Heino's work as
well... thanks again!

Dear Chris Rupp,
I agree with you that recent work of Elaine Colman is delightful.
Crisp, cleanly executed and attractive.
But are there any elements, concepts or techniques in her works we
would not already be aware of?
I think she has shown astuteness in selecting simple themes and
exploiting them by
employing what should be commonplace knowledge and skills.
This pathway is open to all who open their minds to possibilities.
I wish her every success with her work.
Best regards,
Ivor Lewis.
