Statement

The energy of landscape informs Sarah's ceramic, its experience embedded instinctively within her practice and echoed rhythmically and directly into each form. The resulting works in the landscape series share a personal narrative with landscape and explore Sarah's spiritual and emotional sense of belonging within it.
