Sarah Colman

<table><tbody><tr><td><p dir="ltr">Sarah Colman is a practicing artist and educator. Her work is inspired by how we experience the world around us. It’s an attempt to dig deep and bring out the hidden beauty of a material or an overlooked aspect of the world. Craft is fundamental to the way she produces objects and images; in the creative process of making, she finds a kind of alchemy at her fingertips. Her approach to making drawings, prints, or sculpture is intuitive and has a light touch, and the aesthetic often toys with the border between art and design.</p> <p dir="ltr">Sarah studied Sculpture at the University of the Arts, London (2008) and trained as a secondary school art teacher at the Institute of Education, London (2009). In 2017, she gained a Masters in Contemporary Fine Art Practices (Work Masters) from the HEAD (Haute École d'art et de design), Geneva.</p> <p dir="ltr">After graduating, she was an artist in residence at Foundation Bruckner (2019), a ceramics foundation in Geneva, and ‘The Material Archive’ at Sitterwerk, St Gallen (2019 - 2020). Alongside her role at Arts University Plymouth, she continues to research material processes and develop her knowledge of ceramics at her studio in Plymouth.</p></td></tr></tbody></table>
