SUsan I. GIBBS - Ceramic Artist
Susan is willing to sell her works by appointment.
As a public school art teacher of forty years, I have always loved the challenge of working in a diversity of media, method and scale. At the ripe old age of fifty- four, I decided to go back to school to earn my MFA degree. I wanted to focus on clay. Because I do not follow the so called “potters ethic,” I consider my work more sculptural than pottery. I often incorporate fibers and metal in my designs. In 2004, I graduated from Georgia Southern University.
Most of my work is figurative. My written thesis research focused on women's mythology and my studio thesis translates my interpretations of women's issues throughout history. My work displays my love of ethnic art. I love the geometry and abstraction found in African Art, and the color and air of celebration of the art of Mexico.
I believe there are clear connections among the most disparate of works. What has remained a constant for me is the pleasure in the material qualities of clay, fibers, color of paint; curiosity of seeing what will happen if....; and the surprise of combining nontraditional materials and techniques. In other words, I just want to make art. I loathe working in series. Realism and abstraction are interchangeable to me.
