THE PROCESS

Each ceramic piece is coiled with heavily grogged stoneware. Visible from within the form, each coil applied leaves a trace of the process behind, revealing the rhythm of the build. While the clay is still raw and at its most responsive and energised, the piece is painted with coloured slips before being fired. Sarah draws onto the surface of each piece, revealing and concealing the emotional connections made. No two pieces created are ever the same.

 

Maker's Quote

Through my drawings I aim to express the chaos of my mind and the rhythm of my soul. Drawing allows me to speak in my own language whether it's on paper or clay. I draw from what's around me pulling on emotional and physical connections to time and landscape. It is all about that moment, that connection, that place that just allows me to be.
