Susan Kay Wechsler
Susan Kay Wechsler has designed and produced functional art pottery since 1967.
After graduating with a BFA in Ceramics from The Kansas City Art Institute she received a fellowship from the Archie Bray Foundation For Ceramics, in Helena Montana, where she continued her work.
Moving to New York City in 1971, she taught ceramics at both The New York School For Crafts and at The Greenwich House Pottery. She subsequently co-founded and developed a very successful wholesale designer ceramics business.
In 1982 she made the decision that she needed to push her art further than the constraints of a large business would allow, and divested herself of her interest in it.
Since that time, Susan has been an independent designer of artistically crafted, functional hand-made pottery designed for the home, table, garden and office.
Susan's creations have been exhibited at numerous venues including The Lancaster Museum of Art, The Saint Petersburg Museum of Art, The Skylands Center For Art and the Tri-Lake Art Center in Colorado, among others. Her work has been published by Lark Books, Woman's Day Magazine and by numerous other publications.
Susan currently maintains both her studio and show room in Hamburg, New Jersey, and sells her work through well-selected fine art and craft shows, to a wonderful group of collectors who regularly patronize and support the work that she creates and through some select designer tableware outlets.
Her showroom is always open to collectors although, an appointment is preferred due to a busy work and show schedule.
