Susanne Fraser – ceramic ARTIST

Statement: I use gas, electric and a wood fired Kilns to fire my unique earthenware, stoneware or porcelain equine ceramic forms. My work is influenced by the colours and patterns of Asian art and culture and all things equestrian.
Direction: Decorative elements form a symbolic vocabulary where combinations of colour, textures and glazes develop further levels of meaning. Application of slips from locally found clay, different oxides and firing temperatures develop many layers of meaning creating unique and expressive surfaces. I continue to explore in clay, the place of the horse in historical and contemporary relationships with humans, particularly women.
