Susie's involvement in fine arts is long standing. She began working in clay as a medium in sculpture and potting 30 years ago becoming a master in the hand built method. Susieprefers working in large scale. Works are composed of local materials, varying clay blends and accordingly exemplify an indigenous quality earning them a place as representative in contemporary New Zealand culture.
She derives inspiration for her sculpture subjects from the mythologies and cultures of antiquity, fertility and growth.
Susie can be seen working from her studio, the Greendoor Pottery at her home in Maungakaramea, NZ.
