Sarah Keirle was born in England and studied at Staffordshire University. She graduated with a BA Honours in 3D Design (Ceramics) in 1998 and immigrated to Perth, Western Australia in the same year. Sarah creates one-of-a-kind Raku ceramic sculpture inspired by the flora in the Western Australian bush. The hand-sculptured forms reflect the unique shapes of the native seedpods, and the primitive firing technique of Raku captures the characteristics and intensity of natural bushfires. These pieces embody the biological importance of regeneration and new life.
