This archive of work shows the heart of Susan McGill’s ceramics and from these pieces you can see how the work has evolved into the design pieces currently available on our website. This archive of photographs includes old and new examples of ceramics going back over the last 10 years.  All of this work is now sold, but Susan is constantly developing her designs and patterns with each exciting new collection.
