Susan Card: Sculpture titled Buoy in Porcelain Navy (Each sold separately)


Susan is informed by nature and explores this theme in her works of art.  The buoy pieces she has created invites the question of purpose and containment.  It raises the question of is this an artifact at the beginning or the end of life form? Compositional movement is implied, in or out of the form, through the orifice. Incorporating both wheel and hand built techniques each will slightly vary in colour, pattern, size and weight.  Retail Feature: Toronto Potters Biennial Exhibition titled FLUX Buoy was juried by Denis Longchamps (Executive Director and Chief Curator of The Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery) and Susan Low-Beer (Award Winning Ceramic Artist).
