Participates in 2 items
Dr. Susan Surette (PhD Art History, Concordia University 2014) researches postwar architectural ceramic murals in Canada and is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at NSCAD University investigating the implications of the concept of the gift in architectural ceramics. Her research emerges from questions based upon her own experiences as a passionate professional maker - ceramics (1987-present) and textiles (1976-1986). She has published journal articles, catalogue essays and book chapters and delivered conference papers on Canadian ceramics and crafts. She is on the editorial board of Cahiers métiers d'art - Craft Journal (Montreal), and co-edited (with Dr. Elaine Cheasley Paterson) Sloppy Craft: Postdisciplinarity and the Crafts (Bloomsbury, June 2015). Dr. Surette has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in ceramic and textile histories and the decorative arts, and her own ceramic work is found in North American public, corporate, and private collections.
