Sarah Williams CERAMIC WORK

A slip casting class at Massart changed how I approached ceramics and I was able to work in a humorous, trompe l'oeil style that still periodically pops up in my current work. This is the fist piece I made while still an undergrad that got me some notice from a local gallerist.
Early work from 1998-2000
Work from 1999-2001
Work from the beginning of graduate school at the San Francisco Art Institute- 2002
I ended my time there creating these 'lightbox drawings' which are dealing with symmetry, light, and pattern design which has been a big influence on my work today. 2005-2009
In 2012, I spent winter break from Massart mixing 600 pounds of outdoor cone 6 stoneware clay and set out to make a work for Worcester's Art in the Park inspired by the diners created in Worcester in the 1940's and 50's- a diner style coffee cup. The work is about 4 feet by 4 feet. The kiln is a gas 'car' kiln at Massart.
Left: The work drying- took about 1 month and we fired for a week. Right: The finished work right before installation
From 2011-2014, my husband and I built a studio for both of us which has been a labor of love that we are still working on today
Functional Work 2010-now
