Susan Christie is the fine art graduate behind the brand Formantics. Her paintings and ceramics are a playful exploration of form colour and pattern. Her work carries art historical references to the Memphis and Bauhaus groups yet emerges as distinctly unique and contemporary. Rather than beginning with a fixed idea, she’ll pick a shape or form and build the work intuitively. Each painting and ceramic object emerges through a balance of improvisation, chance and order.
All of Susan’s ceramic works are individually hand sculpted and painted by her. Every piece is therefore unique with variations that occur as part of the handmade process.
