Sue Gunn

Sue Gunn is a maker whose ceramics cross between function and sculpture. The shifting landscape of the Earth, whether as a result of natural phenomena or human intervention, is the inspiration for her work.

Intrigued by the visual similarity between the body’s structure and the flow systems found in the natural world, she  pushes the materials, allowing the high temperatures of the kiln to affect the final outcome, embracing the elements of the process that are beyond her control.

She combines grogged paper clays with fractured and bubbled glazes which evoke images of dried and crumbled earth and lava flows.
