Lorraine Sutter’s history with clay is a long one. She started in 1975 after attending a local hand building class in Esterhazy. A move to Saskatoon in 1981 brought her in contact with the Saskatoon Potters Guild, where she taught classes for many years.
Holding a Ceramics Diploma from SIAST Woodland Campus, Prince Albert, she is also a member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council and Sask Terra. A member of Clay Studio Three Pottery Shop since 1985, Lorraine has helped bring the shop to its present status as the premier pottery shop in Saskatoon.
Lorraine likes to alternate between hand building, throwing and combinations of the two. Her production work is medium fired, but she uses the lower firing range for the slip resist and horse hair pieces. Work shops, seminars and membership in many pottery organizations have provided her with the enjoyable opportunity to experience gas, wood, and salt firings.
