About the Artist

"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."

 

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 oxidizing atmosphere.

 

In the late seventies she lived and worked in Argentina, exhibiting in Buenos Aires in between journeys around South America. During the nineties her work was sold at Liberties, Heals, and The Conran Shops in London, Paris and Tokyo. After this, her work slowly took on the 'sea palette', renewing her love of Cornwall ,particularly the artistic legacy of St.Ives. She began making the 'Hot Landscape' pots after an inspiring trip to Australia. She now lives and works in Greenwich, London, a stone's throw from the River Thames, producing work for galleries all over the UK. Sarah is a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
