Sarah earned her BFA in ceramic sculpture at the University of Central Florida in 2011. She created creatures referential to folklore and mythology as a means of addressing difficult content such as neglect, emotional or physical isolation and trauma. These sculptures function as agents of transportation, and reminders of the perspective and perseverance needed to face our own adversities.

The size of her works range from that of a small horse to a human pinky. Sarah studied clay and glaze formulation from 2007-2010, developing her own clay bodies and firing techniques. Firing methods ranged from raku, pit & saggar firing, cone 10 reduction and lowfire oxidation.

From cages to exploded television glass, upcycled materials were often integrated into Sarah’s sculptures. While not overtly present in the final piece, organic material was also strategically placed in firings: banana and orange peel, egg shells, grass clippings, and coal leave flashes of color when the sculpture is sealed off in the kiln, and oxygen is starved in a reduction atmosphere.
