Sue Harter is a lifetime resident of the state of Pennsylvania. She began sculpting clay 30 years ago at Penn State University and continues to work both in her home studio and at camp studio. Her favorite technique is Raku (more information can be found on this technique on its own page).

Much of Sue's inspiration is drawn from the natural world, and this can be seen by the common wildlife motifs in her work. Her favorite animals include polar bears, elephants, moose, rhinos, whales, turtles, penguins, cats, and so much more. These animals can be seen not only as free standing sculptures, but integrated into wall pieces, planters, vases, mugs, and other extraordinary pieces. Some pieces display lifelike representations and other show them abstracted with large eyes or feet.

For the past 20 years, Sue has also been a dedicated elementary art teacher in the public school system which has been an incredibly rewarding experience. She loves teaching and seeing the remarkable art her students produce each year.

During the non-school months, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her family, especially her grand kids Kaleb and Kamdyn, as well as increased time in her studio.
