Welcome to Susan Crame’s Ceramics
My career to date has been working substantially in the Voluntary Sector, with fundraising, finance and office administration being key parts of my responsibilities. Alongside, more directly related creative work, has been as a qualified florist and also in confectionery, using the ancient skill of sugar craft on wedding cakes in particular.
Though I came to ceramics about 15 years ago, it was the 4 year part-time Foundation Degree in Contemporary Ceramic Practice completed in 2010 which moved me forward in the direction I follow today. My clay of choice is porcelain. Thought by some as a difficult medium, I love its purity and translucence. My colour palette, inspired by Chinese celadon glazes are a result of ongoing tests and experimentation. The gentle, cool blues and greens of the celadons achieve for me the calmness I wish to achieve in my tableware, vases and platters.
Teapots are one of my favourite specialisms. I work from home in a small well equipped workshop. I continue to work for a large charity using other skills and have happily introduced the joy of clay to many through a recently funded opportunity.
I completed my Foundation Degree in 2010 and have worked in Porcelain since. My passion is porcelain tableware and sculpting large horseheads.
