Sarah Rooms Heaphy
Art, photography and clay have been a large part of Sarah’s life. Her ceramic work is primarily porcelain based for its true white canvas to take strong colours and textures. The work has evolved over the years, but its identity lies in texture, pattern, colour combined with the coastal landscape.
Since joining the Digswell Arts community her work has progressed to explore emotional responses to the coast; the hypnotic repetition of the waves, to capture the wildness of the elements, texture of the beach, and the marks of nature as it totally surrounds her, a form of escape from this everyday life. To play with the idea of being absorbed, immersed, surrounded, in nature’s power. And to recognise the elemental power of nature over manmade structures.
Sarah moved through the City & Guilds creative arts programme and then a teaching PTTLS qualification. Alongside her ceramic practise Sarah has run a ceramic workshop within West Herts College, demonstrated her work within schools and exhibited in multiple galleries, shows and larger exhibitions and participated in international competition.
Sarah lives in Cambridge and is a Member of Anglian Potters, CPA & Icknield Potters Association. Exhibiting at shows and galleries across South of England & Wales, including,
