About the Artist
Falkirk's woodlands, canals and nearby coastline provide me with a constant source of inspiration reflecting seasonal change and nature's relationship with the historic town, agriculture and historical heritage. Hand building and wheel thrown techniques are used to create a variety of art works such as low relief wall hangings, sculptures, jewellery and domestic ware.
From her workshop in one of Falkirk's oldest market streets, Susan creates unique hand built ceramic art inspired by nature, Scotland's landscapes, plant and wildlife expressed using creative clay work techniques.
Following studies in Art and Design at Falkirk. Susan specialized in Ceramics at Glasgow School of Art, going onto Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen to study ceramics for a further year. She has taught a variety of art skills to a wide range of age groups and abilities. Her pottery skills are now being enjoyed by enthusiasts both young and old through a range of courses, activities and events.
Her immediate enviroment continues to inspire as she explores and develops new art work often combining clay with found materials, or incorporating clay with acrylics on canvas.
Recent projects include her Shores of the Forth exhibition in 2017, commissions for the RSPB and Inner Forth Landscape Initiative, work with community groups, organizations, festivals and events.
