Original Collages
By
Susan Rogers -Aregger

My collages are done with hand dyed papers that are laminated onto a canvas surface.  I use an exacto knife as one would a brush to "paint on and pull off" the papers.  This medium is challenging and exciting to me; the interaction of color, shape, value and texture stimulates me to explore.  I conduct collage workshops in Hawaii and at the Chautauqua Institute in New York.  My clay creations are done using a variety of firing techniques, favorites being Raku and smoke firings.

I hope you will enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy bringing them to life.

Clay Masks
By
Susan Rogers -Aregger

Inspiration for these creations is found within the legends and stories that have been told through the years by the people of the Hawaiian Islands.  These masks are unique and one of a kind, created with a variety of clays and firing techniques.

RAKU reduction firing (removal of oxygen), and bright colors, metalics and a "cracked egg" look.
SAWDUST FIRING is a low fire technique I use to achieve an uneven , smoked look.  Coloring is achieved with acrylic paints that are also fired.

With others I use the kiln, which are ovens (electric, gas or wood) that are used to bake the clay as well as create the colorful glazes that are a glass -like substance baked onto the clay. The masks can be displayed in several ways:  Hung on a wall (I include a hanger with each), displayed on a stand (plate stands work well), or mounted in a shadow box.
