Susie Cowie

susie cowie has surely got the gift of alchemy
her pieces are achingly delicate, understated and so very precious
all the work that once went into doillies and is now written off as kitsch is re-written by her - quietly and elegantly
here is an interview and more beautiful photos of her work at the blog this is naive

Hi, Elvis
See you are a fan of Susie Cowie's! Did you know she is leading a workshop for us next June? An acquaintance of yours, Denise Litchfield has procured the last place on Julie Arkell's but we could probably squeeze in place for an old friend.... and there are still places on Susie's. Be great to meet you at last
