Sue Griggs Allen - New York NY
My inspirations are many. I reach deep within to connect to the creative energy of the universe. With a distinctive expressionist style, each piece is an exploration of color, texture, magic, symbolism and power of this creative energy. All of the ceramic work is original, handbuilt, using a low-fire claybody and a coil/slab method of construction. The surface is carved, textured, manipulated, and bisque fired. I then treat the surface as I do my paintings, with washes of color: oil, acrylics, glazes, pencils and/or pastels.
