We were introduced to the stunning work of Sarah House through the WoArt blog by Christina Massey (check it out!); we were instantly impressed at her ability to create such soft forms with clay, as well as a perfect geometric form and textures mimicking nature. She is a skilled artist exploring interaction and relationships between art and natural macrocosm.
Working primarily with ceramic materials, Sarah House creates abstract sculpture inspired by the fractal nature of the nature. House earned her BFA from Tyler School of Art, and her MFA from Tulane University. She has participated in Artist in Residence programs in Baltimore, Maine, Montana, Hungary, Iceland, Taiwan, Denmark and Chile. House is a Windgate Fellow, a Nyburg Fellow, and has been recognized globally for her work. House currently resides in New Orleans creating works in her Mid-city Studio.
Sarah elaborates on her work:
My works are an investigation of pattern, form and interconnectedness. Through ceramic sculpture I explore the ways in which nature expresses itself through fractals. The similarities between different naturally occurring fractal patterns fills me with a profound feeling of interconnection with nature. In making works inspired from this theme, I hope to show others the innumerable connections throughout the natural world. I will be successful when my audience then notices these patterns all around them, and feels they are connected to something greater than themselves.
