Suzan Marczak finds the natural world a constant source of wonder and inspiration. By exploring the wildness of the landscape, she celebrates the strength and fragility of human spirit, our fragile connection with the manufactured environment, and our ultimate reliance upon the forces which shape our world. Her paintings are an ode to the complexity and interdependence of life, with all of its unpredictability and change.
Suzan’s ceramic work is both functional and exploratory. The alchemy of the glaze and the firing process are the means by which she brings out the depth, subtleties, and beauty of the surface. She creates in rich colours and incorporates driftwood as handles for her decorative ware, pouring vessels, and baskets.
