Description

Working at the wheel, feeling the clay move, watching the shape take form continues to be a big part of my daily life. I am drawn to forms that are simple, graceful and fluid. You can see when looking at my work that the motion of the wheel and the hand of the potter are not lost in the finished piece. I purpose to celebrate all the elements of the process.

Sarah Wells Rolland

I have been working with clay for over three decades now. I am as captivated today as I was when I discovered clay for the first time. I am passionate about pots, creativity and teaching the next generation of potters. Form is what drives my creative process. I focus on the beauty of the line and volume of form and strive for surfaces that keep the form the main thing. Making pots for others to love and enjoy has been and continues to be close to my heart as I create.
