Sarah Dunstan

Based in St Ives, Sarah’s beautiful, unique ceramic works are inspired by her own visual scrapbook, where she collects images, such as the shape of the railing in a hidden doorway in St Ives or an antique glass bottle. Sarah is also inspired by her natural surroundings, depicting delicate lines and floral details in her work. 

Her ceramics are bisque fired, with a variety of glazes and beautifully coloured slips, giving her work a contemporary, striking and instantly recognisable appearance which has achieved international acclaim. 


“In my work I explore ideas around the half-forgotten memories and images that persist from childhood – perhaps a vintage wallpaper, the stylised narrative of my Mother’s Willow Pattern plates or the familiar shape of an opened sardine tin. My aim is to bring these elements together in a finished piece to combine a gentle nostalgia with the absolute, archival permanence of the ceramic medium.”
