Sarah Went

Contemporary Slipware Potter

In my work, I use the traditional techniques of slip-trailing and painting to add decoration to my work. These techniques add texture, making my pieces tactile and good to hold.

I hand-throw in porcelain, preferring its translucent quality, which is perfect for the soft, subtle glazes that I create. When making my glazes, I aim for natural colours reminiscent of the sea, sand and plants around the coast.

I work from my studio in Cambridge and teach Ceramics in Adult Education.

I am a member of Anglian Potters Association.
