Sarah Jerath Large Shard Vessel


Dimensions: W 51cm x H 33cm 

Materials: Sandstone, a wild clay slip and gold lead, impressed with an ancient shard of pottery from New Mexico 

Method: Coiled 


This large sculptural sandstone and wild clay vessel stands on a narrow base and widens at its midpoint, resulting in a bulbous form and organic feel. It’s warm stoney surface is populated with a dynamic triangular motif that encapsulates its entire form. Flowing from its exaggerated mouth the shard motif infuses a movement that invites your gaze to traverse the vessel’s New Mexican inspired composition. The warm ochre hue of this large vessel has history and presence.

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.
