Sarah Ormonde has lived and worked in regional Australia for most of her adult life. This leads to her practice reflecting the landscape in which she lives, and her work speaks directly of that landscape.

Having studied painting and drawing before embarking on a ceramics career, Sarah’s work is very much about creating forms that allow the surface to be used as a canvas. Sarah references the land by using dry, tactile surfaces inlaid with oxides and slips.

Sarah has exhibited in Korea, and widely in Australia. She works from her studio at home on the South coast of NSW.
