Artist/Designer - Auckland

"Bringing art and object together"

Susan Christie is the creator behind formantics. The thing that sets Susan’s work a part, is her ability to walk the line between art and design.  She is a painter, ceramicist and product designer.  

Formantics shelves were designed out of Susan’s a desire to curate objects and paintings together on the wall. These beautifully handcrafted shelves provide the system to bring art and object together.

“I am so proud of the shelves as they took a lot of work to get just right. I wanted them to be able to be hung anywhere on the wall. I don’t like to be restricted by having to hang art into a stud. My shelves can be hung anywhere and take some hefty weight. The beautiful lines on the ply and the round geometric shape work in perfectly with my obsession with lines.”

Susan’s first career was as a psychologist but she decided to take the leap and go back to University. She graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2015.

"The highlights of the experience at University were receiving the AUT painting award in my first year and being selected for the Eden Art Awards in my last year. Yay, it felt so good!”  

In 2016, Susan set up formantics and hasn’t looked back!
