How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I make little pieces of art for your home, to use and cherish.
Designs, include a colourful selection of flower bricks, espresso cups, toast racks and bowls.
My approach to potting is relaxed and playful, every piece is treated with an excitement and love of the material, I hope this translates through to the finished pieces.
Cups and bowls are wheel thrown, I slab build individual soap dishes and flower bricks and press-mould plates. Slips and colourful underglazes are brushed and splattered. Sgraffito designs are freely etched into the clay, making the pieces pleasingly tactile. All creating happens at the wet clay stage and I finish every piece with a simple lead-free glaze.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

My name is Sarah Monk, I'm a potter and I make small batch slipware in my studio at Eastnor Pottery, near Ledbury.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I collaborate with my husband and fellow potter Jon Williams to offer recreational pottery classes from our studio at Eastnor Pottery. Our creative short courses and workshops are open to individuals and groups. You can book for an hour and a half, a day course or a whole weekend!
