Susie Cooper was born in 1902 at Stanfields, Stoke-on-Trent. She soon developed an interest in drawing, and began attended art classes at night school at the Burslem School of Art. So that she could join the Royal College of Art, Susie joined A.E.Gray Ltd.

A. E. Gray recognised her talents as a designer and painter and alowed her to produce her own hand painted floral designs. In 1923 A.E.Gray launched the Gloria Lustre Range employing the technique of lustreware. In 1929, motivated by her desire to design ceramic shapes in addition to decors, she broke away with her brother-in-law Albert "Jack" Beeson to set up her own business, as Susie Cooper Potteries.

Susie worked for many other pottery firms, including Wedgwood. She was awarded the Royal Designer for Industry by the Royal Society of Arts in 1940, and in 1979 she received an OBE.

At the age of 80 she retired to live on the Isle of Man, where she died in 1995. Like other Potteries based ceramic designers such as Clarice Cliff, her work has become highly sought after and valued by pottery collectors.
