Susan Wulfeck received a BFA from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana in 1981 and an MFA from UCLA in 1984. She has exhibited with Garth Clark Gallery, Frank Lloyd Gallery and Freehand Gallery in Los Angeles. She lives in Atascadero, CA and taught ceramics at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo from 1998 until she retired in 2016. She shares a studio with her husband, ceramist David Wulfeck.
Wulfeck’s inspiration comes from her appreciation and love of pots and of the great traditions of pottery. Evolving from her early years as a functional potter and through graduate school, she came to understand that traditional pottery forms are a natural and appropriate way through which to explore and express a wider range of abstract/formal and conceptual issues. Her work represents an exploration of both form and surface and the interaction between the two.
