Sue Jackson

Sue Jackson creates functional art from clay.

I love the beauty of nature, both the complexities and the simple lines. I want the owner of my pottery to enjoy the beauty of the piece and its functionality. Creating a piece of pottery with my hands – envisioning its form, contours and textures – brings me great pride and fulfillment.

“Initially I concentrated solely on wheel thrown pieces. As my creativity and experience has grown, I have expanded my art, using nature as my motivation to create hand built pieces. I enjoy combining thrown vessels with hand built pieces. I also am bringing other media- metals, wood, beads and fabric into my pieces.”

“Pottery is a very sensual as well as visual art form. I love creating the form and shape, adding texture, and then adding the glaze colors. Seeing the final result when the kiln is opened is like seeing the bud of a rose open and the beautiful fragrance scents the air.”
