Maker's Details - Luker, Susan

Susan hand builds sculptural slab pots that are burnished and raku fired.

Category: Ceramics
The colours and  contours of south Devon's coastline inspire Susan's pots. Susan uses abstraction to more powerfully and directly convey and share her love of the moving landscape in which she lives.
Each pot is lovingly burnished using a pebble. This smooth finish helps random smoke marks to be absorbed.  Deep copper, green and blue rivers flow across the burnished surface evoking the setting sun shimmering on the river & marshes. 
Susan uses oak wood shavings to smoke her work, each piece has random markings and some influenced effects. No two pieces are ever the same.
