Sue Newitt graduated from Otago Polytech in 1982 after completing a diploma in Fine Arts and a year on the full time ceramics course.
Her work has always been based on the wheel as she enjoys the process of throwing and putting together of the pieces at leather hard stage.
For the first ten years most of her work was high fired stoneware, fired in a gas kiln with traditional glazes. Changing markets and technology has seen her move to lower fired white clays and brighter colours.
Lately Sue is enjoying a return to high fired clays and glazes, with an emphasis on form over decoration, with simple glazes and texture.
