Suzan Ipeklioglu inspiration comes from her mixed family background, travels and from everything she sees and feels. Suzan fell in love with the clay in early teens in Turkey but didn’t have the chance to get hands dirty until she came to London and had enrolled to a part time pottery course. Since then she have dedicated all free time to the pottery and recently opened her studio in Plaistow.
Suzan loves taking pictures, capture the objects and moments that later inspire her pottery. With the sculptural work artist tries to catch the colours of the nature by experimenting mix of mat and shiny glazes. Sometimes the essence of the clay and nature is caught by leaving the pieces of the clay without glaze.
Suzan is inviting to her studio in Plaistow at Applecarts which is creative hub. It is also community centre that aims to reach across cultural divides and tell stories which engage, inspire and entertain the audiences. As part of the artists community within Applecart Suzan would like to offer pottery workshops and courses to the local residents of Newham. The kiln is also could be used at the studio. The pottery classes of hand building techniques are available for up to 10 people. The pottery wheel experience classes are catered to smaller groups up to 4 people. The studio is also available to hire as a shared space for more experienced potters. Recently it have been also introduced children and adult pottery parties to the list of upcoming events by Suzan art Pottery.
