Garden Totems and a Variety of
One-of-a-kind Hand Built Objects

Sue Halpern Creates Hand Built Designs in Clay

In Santa Fe, NM

Hand building with clay is one joyful experiment after another. With no need to replicate yesterday’s project and no constraints on my creativity—forms, expressions, and textures evolve around one another and are transformed as each develops a life of its own. 

Fairy houses become aviaries, flowers become magical, bowls and boxes become vases, nests, and chimneys. Globes become pears and mushrooms become rooftops. Each unique object is a product of whimsy looking for a home where the fanciful is valued.
