We are delighted to have Sue Emerson as our featured artist throughout September.
Her pottery is every changing and though known for wall sculptures and installations using steel and clay, she also creates beautiful handmade pottery and functional work with hand-building methods and an array of textures.
As potter may things influence our work and the influences can be from various times in our lives. Having said that my new work is having a strong influence from my days as a silk screen artist. The difference is that now I am screening slip on clay and years ago it was ink on paper or fabric. Regardless of how the images are finding their way on the clay the themes are almost always inspired by the same things – natures textures, flora and fauna of every description, select iconic images and earthy colours and feels. This is just the beginning of a collection of ideas I have had in mind for some time and your guess is as good as mine where it will go. I hope it speaks to you!”
Come see her work and more throughout September on display in our Featured Window at The Potters Place Gallery located at the corner of 5th and Cliffe in downtown Courtenay, BC – Comox Valley
