Sue Savage has been a potter since the 1970's, exhibiting within South Africa as well as lecturing part-time at Stellenbosch University for a number of years. She took a break from ceramics for a while, exploring the interior design and textile industries as well as owning a very successful guest house for 20 years. Now, she's going back to her roots and is back in the studio!
Sue only works by hand, pinching, coiling and slabbing, and has reignited her love for clay. She's excited by the world wide resurgence in handcrafts, whether it be textiles, ceramics, basket-making or wood-turning.
She lives in Prince Albert in the Great Karoo, known for its harsh beauty, magical sunsets and quirky people. She's also part of Prince Albert Open Studios, an event held biannually. See www.princealbertopenstudios.co.za for information on this fun happening.
