Sarah Dunstan

Appassionata Alex copy_edited.jpg

St Ives potter Sarah Dunstan has achieved international acclaim for her unique, slab built work and in 2012 was elected Fellow of the Craft Potters Association in recognition of her

contribution to contemporary ceramics.

On completing a degree in ceramics at Cardiff, Sarah returned to her native Cornwall to establish her first pottery in 1993 and has been a professional potter ever since. In 2002 she moved to the Gaolyard Studios in St Ives. 

Dunstan is known for her highly decorative ceramics, which are instantly recognisable for their floral and antique patterns, velvety colours and intricate, hand cut porcelain forms. Her works are delightfully nostalgic, exploring half-forgotten memories and images that persist from childhood, from vintage wallpaper to the pattern on family dining plates.
