Sue Fuller

1914-2006

Sue Fuller was an American sculptor, draughtsman, author, teacher and printmaker who created three-dimensional works with thread. She was a student of Hans Hofmann in 1934, Stanley Hayter in 1943, and Josef Albers in 1944. She was awarded the Alumni Merit Award by Carnegie Mellon University in 1974, and the Lifetime Achievement Award by Women's Caucus for Art in 1986. A passionate devotee of modern art, Sue Fuller began her career as a printmaker then used some of the techniques she experimented with to develop an original form of sculpture. String was Fuller’s medium of choice, whether used in three-dimensional constructions or titled with numbers and embedded in plastic (a process she patented in the 1960s). Experimenting with the grounds and texture on her intaglio plates let her to study lace making which eventually led her to string. She also studied glassmaking and calligraphy. Studying these materials prompted her to the development of embedding delicate threads into plastic
