Potter Featured Nationally

Posted: Updated:

A Minot-area artist is featured in a national gift catalog that will be coming out soon.

Carla Burbidge tells us about this honor for Sue Davy Pottery.

In a studio located on her farmstead near Burlington, Sue Davy has been creating pottery for many years. She glazes each piece of stoneware: bowls, dinner plates, vases, cups and pitchers that will wind up in gift shops, stores, and galleries all across the county.

She started in a basement working by herself, and then hauling her work to art fairs. She eventually learned how to wholesale her pottery, so that others were selling her work, for her. It meant adding employees, expanding the studio and tuning the art which she loves into a healthy business.

Sue Davy " I get to be in the studio where I want to be and not driving, peddling my stuff, marketing is the hard part for artists"

Sue has featured several designs over the years, her latest is called Red Rock Gem. It caught the attention of the people who run this gift catalog, the Crows Nest. They are not only selling her line for her, they put it on the cover. She also has one of her designs from a previous on sale in the catalog.

Sue " it means I will be busy, which is good"

Much of her work is thrown by wheel, the traditional way to do pottery. But this hydraulic press, is used to form plates and bowls. Sue says the purchase of the press was big step which allowed her to grow her business.

There is plenty of labor involved in Sue Davy pottery. Each piece is loaded onto a cart, and will be wheeled into a large kiln, fired at 2365 degrees. And when it comes out of the kiln, each piece will be unique.

One of a kind beautiful pottery, sold across the country, made right here near Burlington. Carla Burbidge KX News
