Sue fell in love with pottery and particularly with throwing when studying for her A levels, fascinated by the tactile sensation of throwing and the ability to make functional objects that could be used and enjoyed on a daily basis.

Shape rather than pattern has always been her principal preoccupation and her influences have been very diverse; from the Finnish brand “Arabia” tableware that she grew up with to the Minoan pottery that she was first introduced to by her archaeologist grandmother.

She has worked with Tate Enterprises on several occasions, most recently for Tate Britain's Barbara Hepworth exhibition. She has also worked with The Royal Academy shop as well as supplying many shops, galleries and on-line stores
