Suze Lindsay

Biography to Display: 


1992 MFA Louisiana State University, Baton rouge, Louisiana


1987-1989 Fellowship, Penland School of Crafts, Penland, North Carolina


1996 Fork Mountain Pottery


Suze Lindsay believes utility and art can be joined in a functional object. To that end she often uses feet to give height and elegance to her thrown and altered stoneware pieces. Human and animal forms predominate in her work which is typically glazed with images inspired by historical ceramics. Lindsay’s pieces are fired in a salt atmosphere that gives them their subtle color.

Since 1996 she has shared a studio with Kent McLaughlin, her husband, at their Fork Mountain Pottery.
