Sarah makes one-off handbuilt high-fired ceramic pieces. She has a “Small Works” range which is loosely vessel-based, with pinched ‘gills’ and smooth glazes. these works aim to capture growth, pattern and rhythm, like the trace of movement in the sand. The sculpture is abstract and ambiguous, exploiting the expressivity of clay to suggest the corporeal, the organic and the visceral. Physiological, geological, animalistic, it conjures the mysterious and alien in nature, whilst also reminding us of our own materiality. With the introduction of ‘foreign’ materials – metal, prefired ceramics, and textured bubbling, crawling and cratered glazes, the forms express strength and fragility, imperfection and vulnerability.
