The ceramics Sarah makes are always useful and she produces in small batches of no more than 8 items. This keeps the ideas fresh and the work individual.
Sarah’s really into slipware. (her Mum’s collection of motto ware comes to mind) She uses terracotta clay because it has a deep, rich depth of colour and is a dream to throw with. It feels like melting chocolate through her fingertips. The potter’s wheel allows fluidity, a quality she loves in ceramics.
Slabbing and modelling are also an integral part of her making process. She uses very soft clay, squeezing and joining everything together with fingerprints, while it’s still lovely and soft.
