Bio - Susan C. Whitham

My love of clay began as a small child. Decades later, clay is still the tangible substance with which I best express myself on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. Clay is a sort of communication device between myself and the outside world. I don't question my need to create. I pass along my experience through creating, appreciating, listening, and teaching.

Oregon was my home from 1978 until recently. It was the University of Oregon that launched me into the world with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics in 1983.

Today, my studio is in Duncan, BC on Vancouver Island off the Canadian west coast.
