Sarah creates striking contemporary sculptural forms for domestic and corporate interiors. These distinctive, organic forms explore positive and negative space through a changing visual perception of line, colour and contour. Each piece, made in pure white clay, is hand cut with dramatic curves to reveal a bold and vibrant interior.
The hand blended colours creates a bold contrast to the natural smooth clay exterior. By absorbing light these non reflective surfaces create deep shadows within the form, adding a new dimension by increasing the depth of internal colour.
These beautiful ceramic sculptures are not created for functional use but as exquisite art forms; designed to stimulate the senses and add a touch of unique contemporary design to their environment.
Sarah first discovered her passion for ceramics when she took up the subject at college in 1996. Immediately taken by the freedom of the material Sarah went on to gain her Ceramics MA from Cardiff Art School in 2004.
'I have been driven by the fluid nature of clay since the first day I worked with the medium. The possibilities seem endless; clay has its own presence and energy that I try to capture within my work. I am also fascinated by the dramatic effects of light and shadow on three dimensional forms, as I believe it brings a new interactive dimension to my work. I find inspiration in the purity of organic form and the aesthetics of modernism. Particularly by modernist abstract sculpture that challenges our everyday perception, such as the beautiful pierced forms of Barbara Hepworth and the clever perceptual disorientation in the work of Anish Kapoor.’
Sarah has exhibited widely across the UK, and also in the US. Spending several years as a resident at the prestigious Cockpit Arts in Holborn Sarah’s work has also been used on TV sets and for large corporate commissions. After a three year break to start a family, Sarah has since relocated to a garden studio at her home in Surrey.
New work coming in 2020
