Susan loves the tactile quality of clay, and makes small intimate objects that can be picked up and used. Buttons are the ultimate item to be felt and stroked and caressed and used, and to be useful.
Most of Susans thrown ware is made from stoneware clay and she loves the colour of the toasted clay againt a variety of glazes.
Susan gained her BA Hons degree in Three Dimensional Design at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2006, and one of her tutors was Alex McErlain, teacher and production thrower. Susan also worked with potter Jack Doherty during her work experience from university and two courses in porcelain and soda glaze.
