About Sue Stelzmann
My artwork is architectural and includes large tile murals and sculptures that look like buildings. The murals I make are permanent public art pieces that use handmade tiles and assembled with mortar and grout. My sculptures use architectural motifs to express my feelings about the world and how I internalize its values. All my work uses clay and is fired in a kiln.
My interest in clay started over 30 years ago when I took a clay class at a community art center. I grew up in Tampa and moved to Tallahassee after graduating from college with a math degree. Working full time as a management consultant, clay was my creative outlet. Mostly I am self-taught, but have had instruction from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia (1999) and various workshops offered by ceramic artists. In 2014 I started Tallahassee Clay Arts, a club for ceramic artists which now has over 100 active members.
