Sarah Jerath Indigenous Clay Shard vessel


Dimensions: W 25cm x H 23cm 

Materials: Lancashire clay blend, old shard from New Mexico and gold leaf

Method: Coiled 


Inspired by the corrugated ware of New Mexico, this mid-sized vessel has been hand built using the coiling method from a blend of Lancashire clays. Its bulbous organic form is rough finished preserving the natural artifacts of the clays surface. The hue of the natural materiel is a uniform warm grey brown that is dispersed with a fine bright grain that runs throughout the form. Stippled by an ancient shard, the artist has gently broken the surface of the vessel with a haptic motif that disrupts the light on its surface. 

About the Artist:

Sarah Jerath studied Ceramics, Sustainable and Natural Silicate Material Research at Lancashire University and is interested in the way that working with clay is embedded into cultural paradigms.

Sarah lives in Lancashire where she grew up, with views of Snowdonia, the Lake District, the Irish Sea, the woods and fields surrounding her. Her love for the landscapes and natural habitats captivated her imagination and she works with natural, geological materials that she finds around her home. 

Sarah’s ceramic works take organic forms and display an influence of ancient primitive pottery. The process and making are as significant as the finished vessel. Alongside her art she has been making tableware collections for Michelin chefs since 2012. Sarah uses some of the natural materials like tree ash and minerals to create a body of work that has a simple organic aesthetic.
