They always gain high visitor numbers and have reached the highest number of visitors at several museums.
Welcome to ceramist Marianne Steenholdt Bork! Marianne is particularly well known for her sumptuously exotic lion creatures, decorated in warm colors and with gold that shines in the dark. Elegance, expressiveness and touch of the primitive – these are all attributes that can be found in the elaborately decorated ceramics. She is inspired by nature and the stories and the pictures she encounters on her journeys.
NFDA is pleased to continue touring Susanne Thea’s work across the United States.

Susanne has received exhibition and travel grants both at home and abroad as a member of international graphic workshops and is represented in Sweden, Italy, Holland, Germany, the UK, Australia, and Canada as well as at museums in Denmark, Ireland, the USA and the Fiji Islands.
