Welcome to Su Griggs Allen Fine Art
My inspirations are many. I reach deep within to connect to the creative energy of the universe. With a distinctive expressionist style, each piece is an exploration of color, texture, magic, symbolism and power of this creative energy.
All of the ceramic work is original, handbuilt, using a low-fire claybody and a coil/slab method of construction. The surface is carved, textured, manipulated, and bisque fired. I then treat the surface as I do my paintings, with washes of color: oil, acrylics, glazes, pencils and/or pastels.
I let the process flow and unfold in a natural, organic way, stepping aside to become the observer. Each piece expresses a different dimension and depth of the spirit. I never know what might occur. Life is a mystery that way!
***Because my work is one of a kind, most of the pieces are sold on this site, however, it will give you a good idea of the type of work I do. It is best to find me at one of my shows to see a full collection of available work.
e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to see additional photos of my work, or have an idea for a commission piece done to your specifications.
