Susan O’Byrne begins by making a wire framework, onto which layers of printed and patterned pieces of porcelain paper are then added to form a skin. She exploits the shrinkage of the clay around the wire armature to articulate the angularity of the form. Most recent work has seen a development of the surface pattern to reference historic domestic needlepoint, such as the ‘black work’ in the V&A collection.
