LOUISE GRIDLEY - SUGI CERAMICS
Ceramic Art | Community Arts
Workshops & Classes
Hi, I'm Lou!
I am a Suffolk-based artist and educator and member of Anglian Potters and Craft Potters Association. Sugi Ceramics is the brand for my ceramics practice. The name Sugi derives from the humble Japanese art form Kintsugi; which, as a philosophy, celebrates repair, imperfection and healing.
“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in” - Leonard Cohen.
My personal work centres around observations of the female form and celebrates colour, shape and pattern. I love to share my passion for the arts; I teach Visual Arts at Abbeygate Sixth Form College, Bury St Edmunds and tutor public workshops in ceramics and life drawing. As a Community Artist I design and deliver community arts outreach projects to inspire, engage and connect young people to their local culture and heritage.
