Sarah Dunstan

Sarah Dunstan is fascinated by collections of objects: from the very small and personal such as scent bottles, and the mundane such as sardine tins, through to large architectural forms such as Gaudi buildings. 

She collects images, using her sketch book for drawing and painting, but also as a scrapbook. Feathers, fabric and packaging are glued in next to photos. These photos are fragmented memories of places visited; a close up detail of a Greek sign perhaps, or advertising on a French cafĂ© wall. 

Sarah decorates rolled out sheets of clay, using various techniques including painting and printing with coloured slips. The pieces are then put together using paper templates to create the final form - similar to the patterns that her mother used as a dressmaker when she was a child. 

 Some final pieces are purely ornamental but some tell a story.
