As a child, Suzanne Pollack learned to paint by watching her grandmother’s colorful brush strokes and mimicking them on her own canvas. Today, her New England studio is decorated with those original paintings, and she looks to them each day for inspiration. Though she’s moved away from painting pictures, Suzanne still keeps a family theme in her custom pottery. She loves to paint the details of a customer’s life into her works, making them personal, sentimental keepsakes to pass down through generations. When she’s not inventing new designs, Suzanne loves to cook and take long hikes with her dog Bruce.
