Sarah Jerath Porcelain Bellied vessel


Dimensions: W 39cm x H 33cm 

Materials: Porcelain with shale and gold leaf

Method: Coiled and pinched


This mid-sized sculptural bellied porcelain vessel widens at its midpoint, resulting in a bulbous form and organic feel. Its rocky surface is a landscape with beautiful inclusions of shale dispersing the subtle earthy purple red hues of its pinched lapping body. The rim of the vessel is modest and wavers along its edge setting off a motion and motif that cascades over its form, this kinetic motion is present in the interior of the vessel playing with a contrast between the rocky cove like aesthetics and subtle additions of gold leaf that adorn the outer body of the vessel using light to emphasise its form. 

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.
