The little shop at the corner of Bent Street  - Fine Hand Crafts for over 25 years

Susan Bergman

I am drawn to the physical performances we use to convey our emotions or hide them, and find that animals and vegetables—expressed in essentially human proportions--allow me to cut to the essence of these deeper selves. I love the absurdity of human vanity, as well as the tenderness and uncertainty that lie within the desire to connect with others. Each sculpture becomes a character to me, and through a single gesture reveals a larger story.  Props such as clothing or furniture add layers of metaphor and irony, giving literal form to the interior world. All of my work is one-of-a-kind.
