Off to kiln for last firing.


There is great joy and satisfaction in making and giving something handmade.

Bale & Twine™, handmade for Body and Home.

A bit about the artist behind Bale & Twine™.
A life of travel and adventure led Suzanne to New York. After graduating from Pratt as an industrial designer, she worked in the luxury cosmetics world of the city for
many years. Moving out of the city for a breath of fresh air, Suzanne now designs and makes handmade goods.

My ceramic work is designed and created at my studio. Depending on the piece, I might start with a sketch and move into a paper form before tackling the clay. Otherwise I work directly on the pottery wheel or roll it out on the table. Lately I have been experimenting with adding hand formed elements to my work. After a period of drying it is time to bisque fire. Glazing follows and is always interesting and unique to each piece, rather like painting. My work is then fired in my kiln. The process does not end there as then there is the photography and presentation. Creating something by hand gives you a great appreciation for little details in life. Inspiration is all around us.

A very important part of Suzanne's dream behind starting Bale and Twine™ was to be able to give back. A percentage of every sale goes to charity.
