Sarah Wygas

Sarah produces functional thrown work that is made to be used.  The design has evolved, removing complexity to give an overall clean and simple form.

The intention is to encourage people to use handmade items, which give pleasure not only in how they look, but more importantly how they feel.

The glazes applied have a subtle palette with a variation in depth of colour accentuating the throwing lines. The intention is to enhance the overall shape of the work.

Having been surrounded by basketry and Ironwork throughout her life these practical crafts have influenced Sarah’s approach to domestic vessels. The fluidity and strength of leatherwork, particularly straps and handles as an added medium, are particularly interesting to her.

After many years of working with clay the last five years have been most inspirational whilst attending classes at Morley College.

In 2018 Sarah’s work was displayed at the New Designers exhibition where it was selected as Highly Recommended by Denby.
