Sara Radstone was born London; she studied at Camberwell College of Arts. She uses oxidised stoneware, hand built and raw-glazed with a textured and sometimes painted surface. Most of Radstone’s work follows some kind of vessel form, the shape is often more reminiscent of a bag than a pot, giving the impression of a soft yielding organic form which may sag and change with time. Many pieces have a body similar to fissured ancient rock, sometimes with disturbing cracks and holes in the skin and a surface pitted and encrusted as if with lichen, or with stripes of coloured clay embedded in it.
