Clay Mix is featuring artwork by Susanne French. Susanne has been working with woodfired ceramics for over two decades. The process of wood firing involves a team of artists working together for several days to complete each firing. The resulting glazed surfaces are rich in variations of color and texture from the natural wood ash deposited on the clay during the firing. Susanne's work was recently chosen in a well-known juried exhibition "Ink and Clay" at W. Keith and Janet Kellogg University Art Gallery, California Polytechnic State University Pomona, California where she received a Jurors Award.
Susanne holds a degree in Industrial Design from Hochschule fuer Gestaltung in Offenbach, Germany and a Master of Art from California State University, Fresno. She is currently teaching ceramics at Merced College.
