Susan DeMay

Susan DeMay produces functional and decorative stoneware pottery and other artistic forms, such as wall works, sculptural vases, and tile projects. She operates a studio in Smithville,Tennessee.  Each of her clay works use colorful glazes with a variety of surfaces, put together to create a rich expressive palette and distinctive design.

Work from her various series has been exhibited in numerous galleries. Abstractions, repeated patterns, and storybook narratives reveal many sources of inspiration. Modern paintings inspire color schemes and balanced compositions; quilts inspire specific designs and rich color combinations; blown glass inspires decorative shapes and fluid surfaces; nature inspires intriguing effects; and personal experiences inspire colorful images that can point to social issues.Susan is also a teaching artist and has a long career that has included positions in many art programs in Middle Tennessee.  She has taught at Vanderbilt University for almost 20 years, and has been a featured guest at the Appalachian Center for Crafts, Fisk University, Middle Tennessee State University, Sarratt Studio Program, and Watkins Art Institute.

Susan's work is currently featured in the Gift Shop.
