Sarah Burton makes contemporary decorative objects and vessels inspired by organic forms and landscapes. Sarah uses traditional hand building techniques to create one-off vessels with hand painted abstract surface designs.

Sarah started working with clay in the late 1970’s and set up her first pottery studio with a fellow potter in 1990. Continuing to make and sell pottery over the years, alongside her office based career, she then set up ‘Sarah Burton Pottery’ in 2007 and started teaching pottery evening classes and became a full-time potter in 2011.

You can find Sarah’s work on her online shop and in galleries around the UK.


Sarah Burton Pottery studioMy pottery studio is in my garden, it is a beautiful brick building with lots of windows and a skylight proving lots of light. It is a lovely place to work and although it is small there is enough room for my kiln, work benches and potter’s wheel.


I mainly work with stoneware clay and the glaze decoration for my ceramics is mainly abstract using a palette of three colours overlapping to create more colour. I have started working on larger vessels, enjoying the slow process of making using coils and slab building which allow me to create some interesting angles in the clay and to add texture.

If you are interested in this work, please contact the artist directly through the links above.
