Susan Roston was born and lives in Ottawa she is a mostly self-taught ceramic artist. A two-week solo residency with the late Jim Thomson solidified her commitment to art as a whole, and allows her practice to not remain rooted in just one medium.
Susan creates what she sees as being soft, reflective work with organic, textural aspects.
Susan’s recent body of work has made her think more intellectually about what it means to take one form with a concept and turn it into something that isn’t overly literal. Her need to be near and around water has given her better insight into the subtle changes of form, light and movement.
