Susan Smith-Hunter

Ceramic Planter

I delight in the forces of nature and natural forms. Sculpture is my primary mode of communication and clay is the vehicle. My work ranges from figurative wall planters to imaginative hand built forms and functional, but sculptural, freestanding structures.

I am proud to be a sixth-generation Champlain Valley resident. I earned a BFA at Rhode Island School of Design and MFA at Tulane University then went on to work as a ceramic bell maker at Paolo Solari’s Arcosanti before returning to New England to teach studio art and art history.
