Clay, as a medium, provides uniformity and a counterbalance to structural geometry. Susan Phillips’ work is essentially about connection: both as a maker with their material and that of formal relationships: whether romantic, platonic, familial or something much more abstracted. As a sculptor, she creates intimately scaled architecture from raw fired clay, which has been designed for aesthetic and psychological purposes. Themes of opposition and balance are explored throughout, with forms that interconnect whilst retaining their separate integrity. It is Phillips’ intention that the work facilitates a felt experience, particularly of stillness and calm.
