“Thankyou very much for the ornate shallow ring boxes you designed for me. I am very pleased with them! I was very pleased [to find your site] as I had been looking to find an outlet for your raku for a long time since I bought an ornate shallow ring box of yours as a present for a friend.”
“I just want to tell you how much we love having the vase that we bought from you during the Arts Festival last year - one of the series inspired by Ella Naper's jewellery. It is such a beautiful object and the craftmanship is superb. I can't imagine how you created the pattern round the top as it is so intricate and regular for hand-made work. The light glints off it at different angles and produces wonderful sheen-like colours.”
“ I just had to drop you a note to let you know how well your trinket pot was received. My brother and his wife were overjoyed with their gift, it meant so much to them to receive something so personal. Can I also thank you for the time you spent with me, talking me through the design ideas and answering all my questions. I’m especially grateful to you for making the whole process friendly and enjoyable to a ”pottery virgin” like me! Thanks again for the beautiful piece and I will definitely be visiting you again for another item in the near future.”
“In sponsoring the trophy for the Oldest Yacht participating the Annual Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, we were looking for quality, craftsmanship and beauty. Over the past 15 years Eleanor Newell has fulfilled all these requirements, each year producing yet another fine trophy which we have been pleased and proud to present.”
“As a collector of a lot of Ell's ware, I can assure anyone who is interested, that the skill and level of craft that these ceramics represent are second to none. They are gorgeous.”
“Thank you very much for the fabulous vase you sent me. It arrived safely and looks fantastic. I’m sure my friend Joe will love it when he opens it on Christmas Day :)”
"I am really grateful for the time you spent discussing the various designs and ranges you have. I enjoyed the conversation, It didn't feel like a sales pitch and your obvious love and passion for Raku was very apparent. The two pieces I bought actually surpassed your descriptions, the colours and textures are absolutely stunning and I love the way that they shimmer and change throughout the day, they seem to play with the light. Your craftsmanship and designs are nothing short of sublime. "
