Pam Su's Biography and Portfolio
Pam Su is an American artist working in ceramics. She grew up in the tri-state area of the United States, studied film at Cornell University and apprenticed as a traditional potter in Taiwan, before completing a master’s degree in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art. She goes between NY, her studio in Taiwan, and London, where she is currently based. Su still draws on her interest in auteur cinema and tries to find ways of harnessing the fleeting and poetic nature of the filmic in mood, tone, and atmosphere to her sculptural ceramics. Her use of glaze, form, and colour is a contemporary extension of American Abstract Expressionism. She approaches her sculptures as paintings in form and is attracted to translating urban feelings of space.
