Sarah Mansbridge

“My works are predominantly monochrome in colour as I am fascinated by texture and the interplay of light and shadow on form. I often work with vintage fabrics and other textural elements to create hundreds of individual ceramic pieces, which are all unique. These are then assembled onto glass, board or linen to create both freestanding and wall mounted objects.”

Sarah Mansbridge studied Illustration at Falmouth College of Art, graduating in 1996. She went on to illustrate books for a variety of different book publishers through Lori Nowicki Agency in New York, USA before working for Tate St Ives, then some years later, founding her own gallery Cornwall Contemporary in 2006. After many years running Cornwall Contemporary, Sarah decided to return to her own art practice. She subsequently rediscovered throwing at Leach Pottery and then spent a winter with Ken Spooner in his ceramics studio developing her hand building techniques. She now works predominantly in stoneware, creating free standing and wall hung sculptural pieces that are made up of hundreds of individual and unique ceramic pieces.
