BIOGRAPHY

Susan Greenleaf is known for stoneware and porcelain pottery. Decorative techniques include bas-relief, intaglio, carving, relief molding, and sculptural applied details.  Jars, teapots and mugs may have handles or finials of small scale animal sculptures. Greenleaf often uses celadon and other transparent glazes, along with heavy metal stains, to highlight the decorative features of the pottery.

From 2007 to 2009 Greenleaf created a library of negative bas-relief tile molds referencing flower and fauna and developed a low relief line of porcelain tiles.
