Animal Portraits, Print, Pattern and Paper Porcelain: In conjunction with the exhibition Urban Parallel:
Ceramics in Scotland, Susan O’Byrne will be demonstrating her making methods at Artistry and running
the master workshop Animal Portraits, Print, Pattern and Paper-Porcelain. Over two days Susan will
demonstrate working on a nichrome wire armature, building with thin sheets of paper-porcelain and
printing and collaging the surface of her forms. The master workshop will allow participants the
opportunity to experiment with these techniques and make work in the style of her animal portraits on
view through out March at Artistry. The techniques Susan uses in her work combine ways of making
normally associated with papier-mâché, textiles, and collage. O’Byrne is a Scottish based ceramic artist. She
specializes in the making of allegorical animal forms and has developed a unique set of making processes which aim to
articulate human sensitivity. Full workshop, including Demo: 9:30am – 5:00pm each day (Artist Talk and
Demo separately open to an audience for reduced fee).
