Artist biography

Susan Luker studied ceramics at Plymouth College of Art, where she fell in love with the pyrotechnics of Raku. There, she developed her own unique style: handbuilt sculptural ceramics, burnished, incorporation a river of copper and using resist slips and glazes.

Her newest work, displayed at the Tidal Gallery, departs from her original style. Still handbuilding her pots using slabs of white stoneware clay, this time she is pushing the boundaries of the material by challenging the glazing and painting process firing several times and applying multiple layers and techniques.

Sue has been exhibiting her work since 1999 and has been an elected member of the Devon Guild of Craftmenship and the Craft Potters Association since 200. She has also had extensive experience teaching her craft.
