Biography

Sarah loves the challenge of hand-building ceramics with porcelain clay. She spends time collecting shells, ammonites, rocks, leaves and all sorts of textures to create relief textures on her pieces. The white porcelain surfaces are printed with layers of coloured slip, delicate sea textures, bold marks & pencil marks to create the atmosphere of the coast.  The work is fired to a maximum of 1260’ in an electric kiln, creating delicate, yet strong porcelain vessels, glazed internally.

Sarah works in my home studio, in Cambridge, surrounded by her photographs, paintings and sketches of the coast for constant inspiration.
