Potter's mark: 


Sarah Guppy - hand built ceramics

Prior to discovering clay I worked as a gilder and painter, and continue to do, however clay is an absorbing medium with endless potential.

I began working in clay with Bronwynne Cornish and soon joined Auckland Studio Potters where for many years I was taught by Peter Lange, Peter Stichbury and Renton Murray.

Twice I have been selected for the Wai Clay awards at the Waikato Museum, and have exhibited in Wellington at Visual Culture, Artform Matakana, City Gallery Invercargill, and Whitespace in Auckland.

I work on commissions and sell at selected art outlets.
