Ceramicist and Photographer
The Light in the Kiva: Ceramics in the Shadows
Ceramicist and photographer Susan Zimmerman’s unique art of sculpting with sunlight on her ceramics creates clayscapes reminiscent of the sandstone landscapes of the American Southwest.
These images take you inside the casita in Taos, New Mexico, where artist Susan Zimmerman photographed the shadow flames that danced across her sculptures as sunlight set the kiva fireplace aglow.
“Susan has an irrepressible dedication to her art, and inherently draws inspiration from the world around her. She instinctively responds to her inspirations by creating unique artistic pieces using refined techniques.”
