Susan Beiner

Susan Beiner explores what we perceive as authentic, or not, by embracing the unavoidable cacophony of manufactured and artificial materials in our world and introducing those elements into her ceramic work. She lends equal consideration to the installation process and creates expanses of space designed to envelop and engage the viewer. Beiner earned her BFA at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey in 1985, and her MFA in Ceramics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1993. Her extensive career in ceramics encompasses exhibitions, both national and international, permanent collections, residencies, awards, lectures, publication, and professorship. Since 2006, she’s served as a Professor of Art at Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona, where in 2015 she was named the Joan R. Lincoln Endowed Professor in Ceramics.
