Susan Ellenton

Susan’s work brings together her love of nature, interest in technical innovation, and exploration of body-centred knowing. Although better known as a musician and naturalist, Susan has been creating in silver since 1973, when she took her first job assisting a hippie silversmith in Auckland NZ.  In recent years she has been particularly focused on sintering techniques and is the first Canadian to achieve international accreditation in this field throughout the Metal Clay Masters Registry.
