Ceramic Sculpture

by Susan Press

Artist Statement

My years of study were done at the San Francisco Art Institute focusing on printmaking and ceramics. When creating my sculptural pieces I have chosen imaginative characters with which to show the lighter side of life. Working with clay allows me to squeeze an​d twist the material just so — to capture feelings and expressions that I hope will bring a bit of tickled enjoyment to those viewing my work. 

Recently I have become intrigued with integrating mixed media into my work. Slices of vintage photos, rusty wheels, piano keys and other found treasures add to and relate to the stories within the work.
