ARTBAR GUEST: The Ceramicist Sara Moorhouse..

Our guest on Tuesday 21st will be ceramicist, Sara Moorhouse whose work can be currently seen in ‘The Art of Perception: Seurat to Riley’ exhibition at The Holburne Museum in Bath.

Sara Moorhouse was born in Sheffield in 1974. Originally from Worksop in Nottinghamshire, Sara trained initially at West Nottinghamshire College of Further Education before studying Illustration at the University of Wolverhampton. Following a Post Graduate Certificate in Art and Design Education at Exeter University, Sara taught and lectured. Then she studied Ceramics and took a Masters and PhD at UWIC School of Art and Design, Cardiff.

Sara says of her work: “The development of my work into ceramics, colour, and spatial perception began with a Masters degree at Cardiff in 2003. The work explores the ways in which spaces within landscape appear altered depending on the ever-changing colours of season, weather, time and farming. The bowls act as a canvas for paintings that distill specific landscape scenes, perceptibly altering the size, depth, and shape of the form by the applied colour.”
