Artist Susan Gordon’s Home Cultivates Creativity

When it came time for ceramic artist Susan Gordon and her husband to trade their bungalow for a house more suitable to their growing family, Susan knew that, rather than buy a finished home, she wanted something she could put her unique mark on. “We were trying to find basically the ugliest house on a good lot on a good street so we could redo it, because I knew I would want to buy a house and make it mine,” she says.

Susan Gordon Pursues Her Passion for Pottery to Create Pieces That Endure

It didn’t take long for Susan Gordon to realize that her love of clay was going to endure. After a class on wheel-thrown pottery at Auburn University in Alabama led to a master’s degree in art education, she found herself searching for permanent access to a kiln to fire her clay creations. Persistence, as it often does, paid off, and Susan’s designs now fill the shelves of Susan Gordon Pottery, her storefront that opened its doors in Homewood, Alabama, in 2019.
