Suzanne Vilmain’s long art career has taken a sharp turn-indeed an upending—having come to ceramics from graphic design, paper and print making and book arts. In her move to 3-D explorations with clay she uses Raku, pit, soda, high and low firing techniques in her pieces.


Suzanne Vilmain is spelunking her psyche using clay as her headlamp. Vilmain’s hand built large vessels, dice, pyramids, orbs, cubes, cones and boxes are stamped, pierced, pounded, folded, occasionally narrative and ever playful. Her ceramic work sometimes invokes a memory or nostalgia as in a brittle clay envelope with it's flap open and surface impressed with lacework. The viewer is invited back to a time when one received a private missive and expectantly drew it out from it's hiding place. Vilmain's work is 3-E: Exuberant, Evocative, and Experimental.


Suzanne's Artist Statement:
After years of making form through graphic design in the digital world, then finding my way in letterpress -setting type backwards, making artist’s books, making paper and marbling; I now find working in clay a space to act out my psyche, and then going with the clay {Being Here Now} and Going back to symbolic forms from Bauhaus to Surreal  all it’s waiting in between, glazing blindly and firing Raku style with trash can smoking and high probability of surprises!

Her work has evolved into a showing of all her favorite objects d’art and now many large experimental vessels. Come check out what is new in the Gallery!!
