Susan Press Artist Statement:

Since the early 70’s, I have been working primarily with ceramic clay. I studied art at the San Francisco Art Institute with focus on lithographic printmaking and hand-built ceramics. I studied under Richard Graf and Richard Shaw.

Using both low and high fire clay I construct variations on the human figure. Sometimes the form takes that of hanging puppets and other times free standing or walled-boxed figures. My work has often been described as illustrative.

With each piece I do attempt to tell a story either with the figure or figures in the piece, and/or the materials I use to embellish the work. Photo strips are chosen to relate to the figures and their expressions. Found materials are meant to trigger a memory or personal story in those viewing a figure. I hope to sometimes stir emotions including delight and humor.
