Susan Duhan Felix, Ceramic Artist

Ancestors Installation

My work is pit fired ceramic. Pit firing, one of the most primitive of firing methods, requires surrender of control over results. I surrender my artwork and control to fire and trust in what will emerge. This process is dependent on trust and faith. Just as one day can be more beautiful than the next, I am given differing blessings from the pit. A few are more amazing than others. As we can trust in the light returning on a daily basis, I have come to trust the powerful pieces emerging from the flames. I am drawn to the mystery and magic of the ancient and try to evoke similar responses in my art. The Hebrew words for faith, emunah and art, omanut come from the same root. My pieces represent the constant struggle to find the light amidst the darkness and chaos of our lives.
