Susanne Greene

I have been working almost exclusively in clay since the early 90’s.

As with so many artists I have been captivated by its incredible willingness to transform itself into wonderful forms, and to mimic almost any material. I particularly enjoy the process of construction, having had an earlier incarnation as a carpenter. I also enjoy story-telling, perhaps because I worked with young children for many years as well. But then for a few years I moved from more or less narrative work to much more abstract pieces.

While my earlier work almost always had represented something, I was building pieces without any desire to replicate an object from the world, or somehow explain a feeling or thought. It was a very liberating process. But somehow I shifted once again back towards more representative work.

I seem to enjoy most of all letting the clay take me to wherever it seems to want to go.
