A basically self-taught potter, ever learning through experience in my studio, but I have attended many ceramics courses and workshops over the last twenty years and I co-organise the annual Ceramics in Southwell Ceramics fair.

Joining Sherwood Forest Wood Firing Society several years ago, with its kiln in the woods at Thoresby, has hugely expanded my glazing experience and indeed interaction with other potters. The whole process of wood firing is exciting and rewarding – although hard work!
My work is for both the home and garden, some is functional and some is decorative, but whatever I do I am excited by the beauty of the form of successful pieces and the interest bestowed by the glazing.
SUSAN MORTON – STUDIO
My studio was created by using half a double carport. It has a lovely outlook onto the garden and contains space for my electric kiln, wheel and work benches. I have also spread into another shed which houses clay, glaze materials and finished pots. These are small but lovely creative spaces.
SUSAN MORTON – WORK
Woodfired stoneware of various forms is what I make at the moment. Birdbaths made by using slabs, coils and wheel thrown pieces are made then glazed with Shino and Feldspar, Smaller one off pieces are made using tenmoku and Nuka glazes. Other Birdbaths are made using slips and glazes and fired in the electric kiln.
