Susan Beiner

I attended a workshop by Susan Beiner on the 13th at the Clay Art Center which was both informative and inspiring click below to see more.

Above are photos of her exhibition which opened on the same day as the workshop called "Organic Dissolution" Beiners works are very inspiring to me especially because she uses the term encrusting which I also use to describe my pottery as being.  Sylvia Netzer suggested that I attend this seven hour workshop which really was fantastic.  Susan Beiner has quite an exuberant personality and was very interactive with everyone (there were about twenty people in attendance), she was open about everything anyone asked and really it felt as if we were in her studio with her watching the creative process.  I am thankful to have been there because she is such an inspiration for me, I would like to travel down a similar professional path.
