functional pottery

Suzy Hatcher was born and raised in Louisville. She received her BA degree in art from Hiram College in Ohio and her Masters in Art from the University of Louisville studying under Ginny Marsh.


In her home studio in Louisville, Suzy creates porcelain pottery on the wheel. She fires her work in both electric and Soda Gas kilns. She creates forms that are simple in nature and prefers porcelain because colored glazes are more vibrant on porcelain’s white surface. She enjoys the smoothness of porcelain and the way it records every touch of the potter. She is a member of the Kentucky Craft Marketing Program and Louisville Clay.


Suzy’s work can also be found at Kentucky Mudworks , the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft and numerous State Parks.
