Susan W. Dunning

Susan W. Dunning was raised in Florida and attended college at University of Florida, New York University, Adelphi University, University of Southern Mississippi, and University of South Florida. After receiving a Master of Arts in art education with a ceramics major, Susan moved to Vermont, in 1972 where she set up a pottery studio. For 6 years she wholesaled her pottery, then opened a store in Ludlow, Vt. for 12 years. In 1990 she sold the store and did some pottery,but mainly farmed organically with her husband, Peter. Her son, Joshua, who was born in 1972, also helped them on the farm.

As Josh grew older, Susan had more time to return to making pottery and started selling her work at Brattleboro Farmers Market where she and her husband sold their farm products. In the past few years, Susan has continued to go to the Farmer's Market in addition to selling her work at the Shelburne Arts Cooperative, Hanover League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, Puravida in Brattleboro, Vt. and Blue Sky in Ludlow, Vt. She is also a member of the Vermont Crafts Council: www.vermontcrafts.com She is listed at Buyers Index
In recent years she has increased her glazes to include a light blue, a cobalt blue, a green used often with the cobalt, and a new turquoise brown. Her pottery has always been functional stoneware.
