Sarah Walton

Sarah Walton was born in the UK in 1945 and has worked as a potter at Alciston since1975, using a salt kiln. She is the sole maker in a set up where part-time helpers take a supporting role. Landscape is a theme: she has walked, drawn & painted it since childhood and it inspired her birdbaths. Her inclination is to hone down forms that are developed over years. She chooses a limited palette and seeks to exploit the austere and subtle qualities of salt-glazing. With the years her work has moved from thrown to hand-built forms.
