Susan continues to explore form and surface texture with a strong involvement in the mysteries of the natural world. This abiding passion for nature has taken her in an additional direction, quite recently as a designer for the McIntyre Tile Factory, in Healdsburg, CA, where she is developing several new lines of sculptural tiles in botanical themes. Her current work also includes a series of collaborations with Rebecca Moy Behre, an old potter friend from college days, at Greenbridge Pottery in Dayton, MD where this year's works include a series of bas-relief horse theme vases and mugs in celadon glazed white stoneware and porcelain slip on red stoneware (brushed & carved).

A frequent guest instructor on the Washington DC/ Virginia/Maryland art college and art center workshop circuit, Susan maintains studios at Studio 22-Fire One at the Torpedo Factory and at her home in Washington DC. Susan is also the proud mother of two richly talented teenagers.
