Susan O’Byrne

Susan O’Byrne’s approach to ceramics is figurative and the animals she creates are as much about people as fauna. Through close observation, she is able to capture the subtle nuances of temperament, personality and mood – these ceramic creatures are alive with wit and tenderness.
Inventive and also highly skilled, O’Byrne has developed a methodology for creating on both small and large scale. A wire framework (or skeleton) is made, onto which layers of printed and patterned pieces of porcelain paper clay are applied to form a ‘skin’. Her surface decoration derives from a range of sources, including 16th-century ‘blackwork’ and ‘whitework’ embroidery in the V&A.
