Susan Cohen Thompson



Susan Cohen Thompson/Thompson Art Studio (

Camano Island painter and ceramic artist, Susan Cohen Thompson, will be showing new hand built ceramics and a selection of paintings and prints.

Susan’s stoneware and porcelain bowls are formed from slabs gently coaxed into bowl form and hand carved with unique designs. Many hours go into each piece. The bowls are bisque fired then glazed and fired at cone 6 in an electric kiln.

Ceramic pins will enhance your wardrobe with the spirit of nature found in all of Thompson’s works. The pins are made by embossing clay into little press molded designs that were carved like linoleum blocks. Each pin is then hand tooled and shaped individually to make it unique.

Born in New York, Thompson earned a BFA and later studied visionary painting in Boston. She is this years’ featured poster artist for the Camano Island Studio Tour this May. Among exhibitions in New England are Audubon Nature Sanctuaries and The Academy of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University. Regional exhibitions include The Lightcatcher Museum, Schack Art Center and Matzke Fine Art Gallery. Her art is on book covers, CD’s, has been featured in magazines, and hangs in hundreds of homes in the Puget Sound region.
