Born in Bedford in 1978, Susan Phillips is a UK-based artist working with beautifully understated ceramic sculptures. Susan’s work can be described as abstract sculpture, depicting simple shapes that intersect with one another in a study of line and form. She likes to draw attention to the empty space in sculptures, exploring not only what is present, but also what is absent. Her work expresses ideas of potential and possibility through a minimalistic visual language, and is sure to appeal to art collectors who like a clean, modern aesthetic.

Susan travelled down to the artist colony of Falmouth in Cornwall to study her BA in Ceramics, before moving to rural Herefordshire where she has since been creating art. She states architecture as a key influence in her art, and has recently been awarded a research grant to visit the Alhambra Palace in Granada.
