Showcase #16: Susan Frost

28 Oct 2017 - 28 Jan 2018

Colour is integral to Susan Frost’s work. Using minimalist forms thrown on a potter’s wheel Susan explores the interrelationships of mood by placing series of colours closely together.

The purity of these interactions requires meticulous application of glazes as drips or runs distract and divert attention. The colours are produced by adding stains to a base glaze. Unsatisfied with the generic stain colours available, Susan experiments with blending colours finding it adds depth and complexity to the resulting hues. A project grant funded by Arts SA in 2012 allowed an intense period of testing and discovery to create a palette that is distinctly hers. Susan uses Lumina porcelain and fires to 1280⁰ C.
