Sandra Hardy

My ceramics are inspired by textiles and by the traditional uses of threads and fibres (knitting, crochet, embroidery, lace making and sewing). They are a celebration of the creativity of women and girls who typically have employed the needle arts over centuries.

Nature is also an inspiration, particularly the intricate tracery of the elms that line the streets of the city where I live. My porcelain lanterns reflect that influence.

My work is hand built, using slabs, coils and porcelain slip.
