Susan Wortman: Winged Women is a special Breast Cancer Awareness Month Event taking place October 1 – 31 in the gallery. Clay Art Center Artist, Susan Wortman, will present 50 pieces of her “Winged Women” series small sculptures which will be available for sale in the gallery and online. Fifty percent (50%) of the sale of each work of art will be donated to the Cancer Center Support Team, a Westchester based non-profit organization that provides social work, nursing and in-home services to cancer patients and their families.
Susan began this series after her breast cancer diagnosis. The Winged Women were her way of healing from cancer, as well as adjusting to the physical changes of her body after a mastectomy with reconstruction. Each “Winged Women” is a unique, hand-built sculpture made from paperclay. To Susan, each Winged Women is a brave warrior and messenger of strength, health and hope.

Susan Wortman Bio & Artist Statement
Susan Wortman is an Artist Member of Clay Art Center as well as the Hudson River Potters. She has been working in clay for over 30 years. She states, “Clay moves me. I respond to it and it responds to my slightest touch. With it, I push, pound, throw, stretch, roll and gently smooth its surface. From it, I create objects that are functional and sculptural.”
