Sue’s main passion is earthenware pots – wheel thrown, slip decorated and gas fired. She made the slips herself and loves the contrast with the rich orange clay bodies. Her first exposure to pottery was as a child at her aunt’s house with iconic artists Barry Brickell, Len Lye and Wilf Wright. She took classes in the 1980s after moving to Taranaki and then joined New Plymouth Potters which she found a haven for like-minded ‘pottery nuts’. She worked out of her home studio with a gas fired kiln.
