Rounded Double Inversion 2003

Sarah Jane Selwood (born 1969, Scotland, UK)

Sarah-Jane Selwood is one of the country's leading potters. She studied ceramics at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in 1991. Soon after her post-graduate year she joined the staff of the Ceramics Department. Her vessels are wheel-thrown, cut and reconstructed in porcelain or terracotta clays, high fires and glazed or hand-diamond polished. In her work Sarah-Jane explores the tensions of rhythm, line and space. She challenges the simplicity and perfection of a form with its disruption and reconstruction. From the simple curve of an original form lines emerge and she changes the internal and external space of the vessel instilling it with a suspended movement a tension a memory. Her work is held in many collections including the Royal Museum of Scotland, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the World Ceramic Exposition
