Susan Claire Page
With a lifelong concern regarding the imminent loss of many of the world’s diverse species, much of Sue`s work reflects those rare and endangered animals listed by IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) The Red List.
Sue`s aim is to bring these rare and unique animals in to our visual world and plead for their recognition. It is important for her to show the individuality of each subject in her work and to demonstrate that all living creatures are completely unique. In this respect Sue does not use any repetitive reproduction in her work, each piece is entirely a ‘one off’.
All work is hand built and sculpted using a white stoneware clay. It is initially bisque fired, and then hand coloured with oxides and stains before firing again to 1200C.
