We are so excited to announce the Sue Tirrell: Narrative Porcelain showing at Margo’s Pottery this summer from May 28th to August 14th. Her work will be available to view or purchase online and in the store.*
Sue Tirrell was born and raised in Red Lodge, Montana; a small ranching and tourist community on the doorstep of Yellowstone National Park. She received an AA from Cottey College in Nevada, MO in 1995 and a BFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 1997. Her functional and sculptural work draws inspiration from her life-long experiences in Montana and the West, her fascination with animals, and interest in folk art, vintage kitsch, western art, and culture.
Her work has been exhibited widely in the United States, as well as Canada and Australia. She has been a resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT; California State University, Chico; and the Custer County Art & Heritage Center in Miles City, MT. She has logged hundreds of hours teaching ceramics and multi-media workshops across the US and Canada in community art centers, college classrooms, retirement homes, and one-room schoolhouses. Sue makes her home and studio on the banks of the Yellowstone River in Montana’s Paradise Valley.
*Sue’s pottery will be on display in the store starting on May 28th and available for sale online on May 29th. Items sold on the website will not ship until the end of June, allowing people who come into the store a chance to see the show. If you have special circumstances and need your pieces sooner, please contact us.
