Suzy Staubach has been potting for over four decades. Her first studio was the Stone House Pottery in Bolton where she began experimenting with high-fired slip glazes and single firing. There, she built a catenary arch kiln of recycled hard bricks.
In the mid-eighties, she moved to Ashford and continued potting in her new studio, Willow Tree Pottery. In the first years, she fired with a cross-draft kiln that she built. Currently, she fires in a sprung arch, down draft kiln, making pottery for the table and kitchen.
Over the years she has participated in many shows. Her work is currently available at the Hen's Nest in Washington Depot.
Staubach is also the author of several books on pottery including Clay: The History and Evolution of Humankind's Rleationship with Earth's Most Primal Element and Guy Wolff: Master Potter in the Garden both published by the Univeristy Press of New England. Her new book, A Garden Miscellany was published by Timber Press on Oct. 9, 2019.
