Susan Brown Freeman

Birmingham, Alabama

Susan Brown Freeman(1951-) was born in Portsmouth, Virginia. As a youth, her family moved quite often as her father was employed by the US Navy. She spent her high school years in Lakeland, Florida and Henniker, New Hampshire. She first studied pottery making at Austin College, Sherman, Texas in her junior year. Later, Susan studied with Charles Counts at the Rising Fawn Pottery of Georgia. After her studies with Counts, she pursued an apprenticeship with him to support his studio production. Her work from experience are pots thrown to amazing tight gauge, where floral decoration and reticulation of the surfaces are an important theme. Susan's work was featured in a very important article published in 1996 in the Studio Potter about Alabama potters . At the time of this article, she shared her studio with her late husband Bill. In 2009, she will celebrate her career in the medium with a one woman show at the Kentuck Gallery in Northport, Alabama.  Her work is in the permanent collection of Wally Cuchine of Eureka, Nevada.
