“I work with clay to create an array of graceful, sensuous, organic forms. These pieces are made through a variety of hand-building methods such as slab-building, coiling, pinching, and forming with molds. Rarely relying on glaze, I use textures, stains, and colored clay to add visual and tactile interest. I am drawn toward neutral earth tones that complement rather than distract from my intricate sculptural vessels.

The curving lines and interplay of light and shadow in my work generate an illusion of movement, giving each piece an almost lifelike quality. A successful piece is one that begs to be touched as well as explored visually.” Elizabeth Shriver

Suzanne Stumpf: Whale Sounds, 2007, 8” h x 29” w x 20”d, porcelain or porcelain paperclay; handbuilt with thrown necks; reduction fired to cone 10.Whale Sounds is a multi-component, interactive sculptures. The shapes were inspired by listening to a recording of whales in which the whales’ calls ballooned rapidly and diminished into fine, thin, high endings. (Although some of the objects can elicit tones when blown, this was not my intention.)
