Sue takes inspiration from her former career in horticultural science and her love of nature. Her works use earthy tones, the greens of hinterland country, and turquoise blues of the sea. While some works are functional many are decorative pieces inspired by the environment and the vibrant hues of her surroundings.
Sue explores a range of ceramics techniques including raku with its variation in texture and diverse shades. Her works are brought to life by a variety of glazes, most of which she makes, leading to attractive finishes and exciting final effects.
