Sue Paraskeva
Sue studied at Middlesex University and is now based on the Isle of Wight. She works with porcelain and uses a stick driven momentum wheel to create fine cylindrical forms. In the ceramic world this technique is used widely in Jingdezhen - the Chinese capital of Porcelain. The momentum wheel allows Sue to work silently and without electricity in tune with the spin of the wheel. Sue creates fine cylindrical porcelain vessels, inspired initially by industrial forms. These are refined during throwing and intuitive decorative marks are applied using wood ash slips, colouring oxides and inlayed clay.

In addition to these pieces she also produce a simple range of mixed porcelain tableware, in a speckled cream and a grey porcelain. She has shown at the 2006 Origins Exhibiton and regularly at the prestigious craft gallery Contemporary Applied Arts, London.
