Sarah Perry FSDC


About Sarah
Sarah Perry is a maker of stoneware decorative vessels. She says about her work, "I am a potter because I enjoy the basic feel of clay, its versatility and the actual making process. This plasticity is not found in any other medium and the process can be stopped at any point and made permanent by firing. It is rather like making the stones under one's feet."
Biography Back to top

Sarah Perry gained a BA Hons in Ceramics at Camberwell School of Art where she was taught and influenced most by Lucie Rie and Hans Coper. Driven by her passion for clay, her inspiration comes from seascapes and landscapes and textures found in nature. Intensely coloured glazes of blue, turquoise, purple, pink and green overlap on simple forms to make vibrant seascapes and cool landscapes. Some are decorated with coloured and metallic lustres. Sarah's work is wheel thrown or slab built and fired to stoneware temperatures 1260 centigrade in an oxidising atmosphere.
