Irish-born Susan O’Byrne studied Co. Kilkenny before moving to Edinburgh College of Art where she achieved a Post Graduate in Ceramics in 2000. Initially studying textiles, her ceramic work shows influences from this training, showing a fascination with texture, surface pattern and decoration. The work in this exhibition features new developments in surface decoration and for the first time, the use of glaze to reference Egyptian carvings seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the British Museum. Susan lives and works in Glasgow.
