Sarah makes batches of stoneware vessels, sometimes thrown with a smooth clay, sometimes coil built with a grogged clay. These are individually handcarved. A slow, rhythmic process that is endlessly satisfying. The result is a unique and extremely tactile vessel that looks and feels both modern and ancient. The pots are finished in a dolomite glaze and a combination of slips and glazes, of a colour palette that reflects the local beach where she swims year-round.
I just love pots. Since initially wanting to be an archaeologist and dig them up, or then wanting to draw them cross section for textbooks... I eventually learned to make them. I am influenced by ancient pottery vessels through to Japanese and Scandinavian clean lines of design. I love modern wood carving, sculpture and vessels. The carved lines in my pots are representative of the tidal lines, sand and rocks on the Cornish beaches, the geology of the landscape and the history of mark making in clay.Sarah's vessels reflect and evoke the joy of making with clay. They are mindfully made and beautifully tactile.
