Ceramicist Susan O’Hanlon is a full-time Studio Potter living, working and teaching in Downingtown, PA. She is elbow deep in love with all things clay, and she makes both functional and decorative pots purposefully designed and exquisitely handcrafted to artistically blend form, function and aesthetics.
The wheel is her happy place, so most of her work begins there. After forming, Susan breathes life into her creations with a variety of altering, surface decoration, glazing and firing techniques. A bit of a glaze guru, she mixes her own glazes and is constantly experimenting with application, firing and cooling variations to enhance the surfaces of her work.
Susan’s inquisitive mind loves the seemingly limitless possibilities clay offers an artist for exploration and self-expression. Currently, she is working to develop some complex surface decorating techniques while exploring the realm of atmospheric and outdoor firings. Follow Susan on social media @SusanOHanlonPottery and in the gallery to see her constantly evolving line of work as she plays in mud with endless curiosity and joyful abandon.
