Sarah Battle looks for oddities in Staffordshire figures, rather than familiarity. She enjoys the eccentricities of costume and character found in flat-backs, along with their surprising juxtapositions and the fluidity of scale.
She studied Printed Textiles at Camberwell / Central Schools of Art following a Post-Graduate Diploma in Printmaking at Camberwell she went on to study MA Printmaking at the Royal College of Art.
Sarah was a member of First Eleven Design Studio from 1987 to 2019, designing furnishing fabrics and greetings cards for an international clientele, through a variety of mixed media. Her current artworks employ collage, found papers, drawing and printmaking in celebration of domestic collections and household ornamentation.
A selection of Sarah's work is on show as part of Orna-Mantle-Pieces, a Staffordshire Pottery inspired show.
