Sue Gordon



Artist's statement and Profile:

"For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in stones, and mesmerized by fire."


Sue is interested in form, texture, and surface design. Enameling, epoxy inlay,and anodized aluminum are some of the techniques she uses to achieve both color and pattern in her jewelry. With the enameling process, enamels are applied on the surface of the metal, fired in a kiln, resulting in a variety of colors. With epoxy inlay, pigments, often from eye shadows, are mixed with epoxy, and poured into soldered cells. Using anodized aluminum, watercolors, markers,and dyes are painted on the surface, achieving a painterly quality. Her designs are mostly geometric, repetitive patterns, with an emphasis on simplicity

Sue received her B.S. in Education from the University of Wisconsin in 1966,and her M.S. in Counseling from Baylor University in 1971.She taught art to primary school children for 12 years, and has been teaching Jewelry Fabrication, Continuing Education, at Brookhaven College, for 18 years.
