Sarah-Anne Winchester

 Sarah-Anne is a traditional potter who loves to tell tales and exhibit nature through her pottery. She strives to make practical pots for everyday use decorated with colorful stories that delight all ages.

Having finished her BFA at Union University in May of 2016, Sarah-Anne moved to Baltimore to be an intern at Baltimore Clayworks which she completed in August 2017. She is currently in Mississippi as the Residence Artist at Natchez Pottery where she is continuing to purse her passion for ceramics and teaching classes to all ages. 

One of my favorite childhood memories is of wandering into a field of wildflowers and being engulfed in them as I laid down hidden from sight. I seek to recreate this sense of peace and calmness through the surface decoration of my vessels for daily use. Covering my pieces with simple, delicate carving that mince wall paper with the ordered chaos of plants wrapping around the surface. I hope that these vessels provide a quiet mediative place as they are used in everyday rituals. Overall, I want myself and the user to share the intimacy of emotions, while allowing them to attach their own stories to each piece.
