Susan Frost is a ceramic artist living and working in Adelaide, South Australia who uses the evocative properties of colour and decoration to highlight the sculptural qualities of form with her wheel thrown porcelain vessels.
Susan completed her studies at the Adelaide College of the Arts in 2008, taking an Associate position at JamFactory Craft & Design in 2009, later becoming a tenant. Receiving numerous commissions for her functional pieces, Susan has produced corporate gifts for the Tour Down Under, centrepieces for guest rooms in the Crown Metropole in Melbourne and table vases for Jacobs Creek Winery restaurant.
More recently Susan has expanded her exhibition practice creating an installation for the SAM Showcase at Shepparton Art Museum in 2017 and being curated into exhibitions throughout Australia including a major touring exhibition with the Australian Design Centre celebrating the Sixtieth Anniversary of the Australian Journal of Ceramics.
In 2019 Susan undertook a 4-month self-directed residency at BKLYN CLAY in New York with funding assistance from Arts South Australia, dividing her time between studying the city’s architecture and museum collections and making work in the studio in response. This experience has shifted Susan's practice into a slower, more research-based approach with a stronger focus on developing one-off pieces and bodies of work for exhibition.
