Heathfield Down Farmhouse Gallery
Sue studied biology and geology at university. A move to Nova Scotia led to a change in career when she had a fortuitous meeting with a potter. He offered training as a production thrower in a porcelain pottery. This she did for four years and at the same time produced many glazes.
Returning to the UK in the late eighties Sue opened her own pottery but fired the porcelain with gas instead of electric, which meant an increase in the number of glaze colours including red.
Throwing and surface decoration are of equal importance. The porcelain provides a white background to illustrate Sue's interests: plants and animals.
I have a gallery on the A379 which is Open when the 'open' sign is up. Phoning beforehand is advisable.
