Thanks to Portia Priegert and Galleries West for this lovely article.

Ceramic artist Susannah Montague whips up sugary confections with elaborate toppings of curlicues and cherubs, flowers and frou-frous, swans and seashells, plus all other manner of other precious whimsies. Decorative, excessive and absolutely delightful, her sculptures are both visual marvels and stellar displays of technical virtuosity. But their appeal is also linked, in part, to her exploration of darker themes from childhood stories and nightmares.

Featured - The Jealous Curator


Thank you amazing Danielle Krysa aka The Jealous Curator for featuring my work.

“I have to share a story Susannah told me about the final piece above … “The piece with the gold halo is my daughter. She was born “unresponsive”. The necklace – with the arms – is from Mexican religious iconography which symbolizes “embrace and touch”, because after 36 hours of labour, I fought to keep my twins together, close with me and out of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit by doing “Kangaroo care”. The artichoke at the core has a heart, symbolizing love – and, throughout history, artichokes have represented hope, peace and a successful future.” I’m not crying, you’re crying. A beautiful story from a beautiful person {And, I’ve met her twins. They are creative, kind and amazing … just like their mama.}

Top 100 Sculptors

I’m very excited to announce Beautiful Bizarre Magazine included my work in their Top 100 Sculptors of 2018 on Instagram

a list of artists who work in a wide variety of mediums from found object assemblage, glass, textiles, wood, marble, sculpey, metal, wax, string, bones, feathers, fibreglass, sugar, resin, metal, clay, taxidermy, paper, textiles, fine porcelain etc., and whose works range in scale from miniature to larger than life or room size! All of whom I believe are among the greatest living and working sculptors of 2018."
