Suzanne Hill has been working in clay for over 40 years. She received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from Alfred State College of Ceramics. She spent 10 years overseas in Mexico, Peru, and Bangladesh, where she studied the work of traditional potters. Her love of the traditional vessel form comes from this interaction, while her decoration is inspired by the landscapes of coastal New England and the American Southwest.
In her work, she combines these vessel forms and abstract process-driven decoration to evoke the lines and colors of the land and sky. Suzanne has her studio at the Umbrella Center for the Arts in Concord, MA, where she works and teaches.
Here are some examples of her work.
