After 20 years in the art and interior design industry, Susan was completely hooked on the clay process when she was exposed to an open studio environment. This evolved into having her own studio and a decate later her enthusiasm for this medium continues.
All of her work is hand-built or from slab, using various stoneware clay bodies. Both visual and tactile texture is always a driving force, along with the added form clay allows. The pairing of deliberate intention combined with inevitable surprise is so very compelling as each piece unveils itself and shows its own unique quality.
Her style can be described as 'abstract/organic'. There is a strong contemporary feel to her work yet through organic shapes, texture or the irregularity of shap, form and the deckled edges themselves, a hint of the natural always plays its part making for an interesting juxtaposition.
