Professional oil painter Suzanne Cannon has launched her first contemporary ceramic collection at Opus Gallery.
Despite the different medium, there is a distinct similarity of style. Suzanne takes the classic human form, reflects upon its beauty and elegance, then has the courage to set it free in a celebration of the joy of simply being. Each piece is created solely, and lovingly, by hand so each piece is unique.
She uses both stoneware and paper clay to create her torsos. The paperclay, used for the finer finished torsos, incorporates finely chopped fibres of the ancient flax plant. Each piece is twice fired and finished with a multi layered glaze that makes them as pleasing to the touch as they are to the eye.
