Sarah works with the physical, mindful and repetitive process of making in clay.
She began making following a life-threatening accident (2004) and her recovery was both an internal and external one, integrating the two to reach wholeness. She was introduced to the practice of meditation which continues to be a daily practice of internal observation and stillness. Her work emerges as highly textured and vibrantly decorated sculptures and tableware.
The place of female art and female artists as been firmly planted by figures such as Sandy Brown and and yet a global culture pervades where women are now simultaneously ‘at work’ and ‘at home’.
"I first began to make with clay following a major accident (2004) and through courses with internationally renowned ceramic artist Sandy Brown at her studio in Appledore in Devon. I went on to graduate in ceramics from Central St Martins College of Art and Design and work from my studio in Barnet. Sandy's truth of expression remains a founding influence.
There is a preoccupation in my work with the immanence of the feminine and the results, or lessons, of that experience. Each piece of work is a meditation on this emergent experience."
Sarah has exhibited at Pangolin London, at the Red Gallery, the Brick Lane Gallery, the Nude Tin Can Gallery, the London Design Festival, with the Society of Designer Craftsmen and in a solo show in their Shoreditch Gallery. She continues to build opportunities to exhibit as a woman artist and educator.
