Sarah, a porcelain addict, makes pots and other vessels within her rough-around-the-edges studio in Portland, Oregon. Every piece begins on the wheel as a bottomless cylinder which she alters out of kilter, then completes with slabs and other handbuilding techniques. Her current body of work emphasizes the tactile experience of pottery, employing dimensional glazes while leaving much of the clay exposed. Combined with lyrical surface design in a simple, high-contrast palette, her pieces delight the eye and the hand.

Sarah earned a BA in Biology from the College of Wooster, OH and an MFA in Applied Craft + Design from Oregon College of Art and Craft and Pacific Northwest College of Art. Her work has been exhibited throughout the US and in Japan and has been featured in various publications including Ceramics Monthly, The Journal of Australian Ceramics, and the interactive e-book American i-Pottery. Sarah, a foodie, pedestrian, and transit buff, currently lives in downtown Portland and works as a Gallery Associate for Eutectic Gallery.
