Sarah Cox

Sarah ceramics are vividly colourful, humorous, animated creations that depict elements of both fantasy and reality. Blue birds, elephants, sea creatures, polar bears & penguins are some of her themes. She makes both large and small scale sculpture; her work is mainly 'one offs' but does repeat themes. The smaller scale gallery pieces also include rock pool bowls, anemone vases, mixed media pieces, wall pieces, mirrors and clocks. She uses both slabs and coils of clay in the construction of her pieces, and a variety of surface treatments and textures. She inlays a vitreous slip to highlight the surface detail, and then sprays barium glazes so they blend into each other. The colours range from white, to yellow, to orange / red, to vivid green, to turquoise, to rich cobalt blue and black. The smaller scale gallery pieces are fired to 1100 degrees centigrade and the glaze surface quality ranges from smooth and waxy, to dry and rough.

She also makes large scale stoneware pieces for the garden, which include sculptures, bird baths and water features. She enjoys the challenge of the scale, and reformulating the base glazes to a 1280 degree kiln firing to make them suitable for outside. Clients who admire her work often feel they don't have the space in their homes, but they do in the garden for larger scale work.
