Path and Inspiration Sue Gunn is a maker whose ceramics cross between function and sculpture. She works in her studio SW London.
Her unique pieces challenge the constricts of traditional making; she pushes the materials, allowing the high temperatures of the kiln to affect the final outcome, embracing the elements of the process that are beyond her control.
She is intrigued by the visual similarity between the body’s structure and the flow systems found in the natural world.
Process and Practice The shifting landscape of the planet, whether as a result of natural phenomena or human intervention, is the inspiration for the Earth Collection.
High fired porcelain is combined with fractured and bubbled glazes which evoke images of dried and crumbled earth, lava flows and coastal erosion.
