Sarah has been working in ceramics since 1994. Instantly hooked by the freedom of the material, she went on to complete her Masters from the Centre for Ceramic Studies in Cardiff in 2004. Sarah then spent five years as a resident maker at the prestigious Cockpit Art studios in London. During her time here Sarah exhibited at The Royal Academy of Arts as part of the Modern British Sculpture Exhibition and also had her work featured on ITV's This Morning for six months as part of their 2011 studio set.
“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 fascinated by abstract Modernist sculpture and the way it challenges our everyday perception; in particular the beautiful pierced forms of Barbara Hepworth and the clever perceptual disorientation in the work of Anish Kapoor. I am also inspired by the dramatic effects of light and shadow; I continue to explore this through my work as I believe it brings a new interactive element to the three dimensional forms.”
Sarah now works at her home studio on the edge of the South Downs in Sussex.
