About

Sculpted of earthenware paper clay, this playful piece by Canadian ceramicist Susan Collett is multifired to achieve complex and colorful surfaces. The piece is rich with craquelure in hues of green, yellow, violet and orange. "My full time studio practice includes clay sculpture and printmaking. The work derives from interest in the tension of strength against fragility and as I push the work towards the edge of physical collapse, this theme becomes more potent. The work is hand-built and sculptural in nature. The use of light interplay provides a perceived fragility explored through stacking and channeling of hand-built clay platelets. The sculptures are often turned, tilted, built upon and re-fired, investigating the strength required for negotiating the relation between our interior and exterior worlds. Heaving, disrupted, uprooted forms hover in the space between the solid and the fluid, the fissure between order and chaos, of fluidity and brittleness. " - Susan Collett Susan Collett, RCA, studied printmaking and ceramics at the Cleveland Institute of Art. She is the winner of the Winifred Shantz Award and is a member of the IAC (International Academy of Ceramics). While exhibiting throughout North America Collett has also participated in several residencies: the Sanbao Art Institute in Jingdezhen, China, 2003, and Fuping, China, 2007. Her work can be found in numerous private, corporate and public collections including the Bata Shoe Museum, the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Yinnge Museum in Taiwan, Sevres Porcelain Museum, Paris, the Crown Collection at Rideau Hall, Ottawa and the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art in Toronto.
