Sarah Backler

Sarah is an Industrial Designer with a long standing love of ceramics. By turning her appreciation into an outcome, she has created an offering of porcelain products carefully crafted in her Tauranga studio.

The digital technology of Sarah's vocation is combined with the hand crafted qualities of the ceramicist. The resulting objects speak of the precision of the mass produced but are given character through subtle irregularities intrinsic to hand craft and the firing process.

Sarah enjoys exploring the relationship between surface texture and form in her work; her pieces showcase how textures not only highlight subtleties of form but react to the forms on which they occur.
