Sandy’s career – which has spanned all her adult life – began during her early twenties in Japan. ” I was lost ” she told me, “I didn’t even know where Japan was, but I ended up there”. Spending three years in the ceramic pottery village of Mashiko, with a thousand other ceramicists. Sandy then made her way back to England, starting a small studio in a garage in Hampshire. Eventually, she moved to Appledore, North Devon, where she has lived for the past twenty eight years, during which time Sandy has established a very successful career, with a large international following.
Sought after as an Architect, Sculptor, Potter and Painter she explained, “My career has been developed without repetitiveness, thus negating boredom”. which from her enormous output of different art works is possibly stating the obvious.
In between creating an enormous ceramic arch sculpture, throwing clay on a traditional potters wheel to produce functional tableware, – she supplied a whole house thirty five years ago and now designs for the original purchasers grandchildren – . “My tableware is made for daily usage” she states, I must say I would be more than happy to have her original colourful pottery in my life.
