SUSAN'S ART

 

Susan began her journey into ceramics 20 years ago in Scotland, where she was a slip caster for a busy ceramic studio on a farm in the lovely Perthshire , and since then has been self-taught, but regularly attends workshops hosted by masters in various techniques that she feels will add to her own creative work.

She runs the  Crafty Hands Studio, has sold her own work, given demonstrations, and has been involved in a number of group exhibitions. Susan has created a number of collections of work using local , east cork clay, that she has dug from beaches by her home. Before this , Susan had always used commercial clays, now there is no going back.. "" digging, sieving & preparing the clay has brought a tremendous amount of satisfaction to my whole creative process"". 

"I love to create ceramic pieces in tune with my environment and mother nature. The clay can only be accessed and excavated when the Atlantic tide is out, revealing a  bed of  fine clay and the foliage I gather to print in the clay is collected from the first growth in spring or in the Autumn before the foliage falls and returns to the earth."

 She is also working on sculptures pieces that merge textiles and ceramics. In these sculpture pieces, Susan is exploring the  the fine line between strength and fragility.

She has made ware for local restaurants including the award winning Sage restaurant in Midleton.

You can purchase Susans work at her gallery/shop in her Midleton studio.
