Susan Ramsay-Smith

My ceramics practice is underpinned by an ecological approach, sourcing and processing local dug, Weald Clay.


Artist Statement

I find and source this unique, ferrous-rich, clay material as it offers many exciting discoveries, such as its earthy, coarse qualities and potential to fire to stoneware temperatures. I exploit the material by combining thrown and hand-built components to create distinctive vessel and sculptural forms. I allow the alchemy and interplay between material and process to inform the outcome of my work.
