“Clear, vivid colours, are an integral feature of my work, they were probably instilled into my psyche during my childhood growing up in the tropics. Colour has a powerful therapeutic action, which can have a healing and re-balancing effect for both the artist and the viewer.”
The human figure is a favourite subject of Ingrid Saag’s, often used in the context of life experiences and interests, or with reference to writing. Some pieces are inscribed with poetry describing the passions, lusts, furies and joys inspired by human love. Landscapes and the natural world are also incorporated into some of her designs.
Ingrid’s vases and bowls are unique or editioned hand painted pieces. They are slip cast with white earthenware clay and often altered after removal from the mould, to produce highly individual ceramics.
