Today I am featuring the
the Awesome Pottery
Suzanne's Pottery Farm
In the Artist's Own Words:
My name is Suzanne and I love clay. I love how it feels and even how it smells. I love to throw clay, and I am totally amazed with what can be made using clay. The 5 clays that I use are: raku, porcelain, and three colors of stoneware. I like each one for its own unique properties and can't give up any one of them because each one is used to create something different. Almost everything that I make is thrown on the wheel - vases and urns, piggy banks and bunny banks and pieces that make my grandchildren happy--and make me happy too--, mugs with big handles, all sizes and shapes of pitchers, garden and fairy garden items, and a lot of seasonal items.
I am a left-handed potter and I throw in the opposite direction of most other potters. For the main part, I taught myself how to throw clay on the potters wheel. (The potters wheel that I learned on is a very special wheel that was made for me by my father. It was made from a tractor axle, electrified, and it is a three speed stick-shift with a clutch. The wheel is still in use - now I use it to grind the bottoms of each piece as it comes out of the kiln, to be certain the bottoms are nice and smooth. )
