Description:

Resident of Santa Ynez, Sarah Chamberlin works within a centuries old ceramic technique, Majolica, which is now gaining a renaissance amongst collectors and artists in the United States. Majolica was developed in the Middle East around 800 AD in an attempt to copy Chinese porcelain. After studying several different ceramic techniques over many years, Sarah finally settled on Majolica as the best way to showcase her unique talents, as it allows the use of an extensive color palette, which is unavailable in many other ceramic techniques. Sarah makes use of the red earthenware and enamel-white glaze to achieve stunning contrast within her work. Her pieces are all hand-made, either on the potter’s wheel or by using several different hand-building techniques.
