I will be showing my work at this Ceramics Festival in Sheffield.
August 4th – 31st 2022:
LAND, SEA AND SKY EXHIBITION at The Mill Yard Studio Gallery, Caudwell’s Mill, Rowsley, Derbyshire DE4 2EB
September 10th-11th 2022
‘A Celebration of the Table’ in the heart of the Peak District, Wardlow Mires Pottery and Food Festival.
Both of these exhibitions are on until Christmas. They are both lovely galleries, both in Derbyshire, and are worth a visit. You may find some Christmas presents for loved ones, or even for yourself there! The Old Lock Up Gallery is open Friday to Sunday, 11am to 5pm.
A rare opportunity to see my slip decorated sculptural bowls, dishes and platters in this exhibition in a lovely location. Why not have a day out and visit the mill and cafe as well, or take a walk in the surrounding country side. Also showing her work will be painter Joyce Andrews.

Wardlow Mires Pottery and Food Festival
Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th September 2021
This event is back on! A much loved ceramics festival, with work from potters from all over the country. It is visited by collectors and pottery enthusiasts who amaze me at how far they travel to visit this event.
David Whiting, art critic and curator, described a previous event as ‘refreshingly selective’ with its ‘personal and intimate nature … [where]… famous names rub shoulders with the lesser known … there is so much to enjoy … [especially] … Sue Blatherwick’s vibrantly painted dishes and tiles …’
‘And the rain came’
Derbyshire Open Arts 2020. Saturday 23rd – Sunday 25th May 2020. This event was cancelled due to Coronavirus.
‘And the rain came’ is an installation of ceramic items which creates a visual comment on the current environmental changes which are taking place in our planet.
In this work I am using ceramics and other media to create an installation commenting on the current climatic change we are experiencing here in the UK and elsewhere. I first made a piece of work called “Global Warming’ in the 1980s, informed by research based on Greenpeace documents. However the melting off the ice-caps is now alarmingly obvious and has resulted in colossal amounts of rain creating huge floods and devastation in parts of this country. These warnings are something which, like Noah’s story in the bible, we need to take seriously in order to preserve our infrastructure and sea defences.
