Suzanne Lowry is an award-winning artist whose ancestry reveals a long line of artisans, including great-grandfathers Adolf Daucher (1465-1523) and Hans Daucher (1487-1538) whose sculpture was recently sold in Paris for 2.6 million dollars.
Suzanne combines a lifelong love of photography, painting, art glass, pottery, glass fusion, and unique soldering techniques to create her signature copper and mixed media sculpture.
Recycled materials often compose the armature, which is either covered with incised, shaped, soldered, and plated copper and other metals or left exposed as part of the composition, in the same manner as the sculpture of Edgar Degas. Some sculpture incorporates semiprecious stones, river stones, metal findings, and other embellishments in the design.
Bases may be silver or golden quartz, sponge rock, or casting cement, often coated with micaceous iron oxide or covered in a grouted mosaic of glass, shell, clay pieces, tile, or stone.
