Susan Simonini

After painting and screenprinting for over a decade, Susan Simonini felt she needed a new creative outlet. She took a pottery class in early 2013 and fell head-over-heels in love with clay. She has since built her own self-titled ceramic practice.

Susan embraces creative intuition and employs an organic approach starting with a loose idea of a shape or design in mind. She allows the process to determine the end product, whether it be a sculptural piece of art or a functional object. Each individual form and each type of clay lends itself to different surface treatments; while some pieces are simply glazed others become highly decorated.
