My creations incorporate aspects of thrown and handbuilt techniques. I have experimented with many different glazes and natural ash to reveal exciting reactive results.

Biography

Sue-ann Blakely is a Potter, Wife, Oma, Golfer and Curler based out of Ottawa, Ontario. She has a Bachelor of Science degree and has taken numerous years of ceramic courses including Haliburton School of Art. With Sue-ann's scientific laboratory background she was naturally led to the World of Ceramic Chemistry. Glaze layering coupled with her modified firing schedules create her rich runny reactions. She mixes, by hand, her palette of lively coloured slips, gloss and satin glazes. Continual experimentation and particular discoveries design her handmade creations, both wheel thrown and hand built.  All her work is bisque and glaze fired, at her home studio, to cone 6+, approximately 1250 degrees Celsius
 

Artist Statement

I create functional pottery, mugs are my favorite, which people can bring home and use to their full enjoyment. The shape, the weight, the form and especially the reactive glazes have to be right. My approach to glazing involves multiple steps and multiple glazes. I encourage glazes to run or pool and take their own direction in the heat of the kiln. My slow cooling process will create subtle but beautiful crystallization. Canadian geographical beauty inspires my various fields of colour.
