"Sculptor and designer exploring the boundary between spirituality and functionality"
What makes an object sacred or useful? Why do we bring these items into our homes and our rituals? By stripping back the superficiality of aesthetics, objects begin to reveal their inherit values or given meanings. Sara is always looking for the line between spirituality and functionality and often draws inspiration from the visual culture of her hometown, New Orleans as well as her Catholic school upbringing there.
Sara's work is dependent on process. It begins with an idea, and then detailed research and study into ancient, often forgotten processes. While her craft is primarily focused on metalworking, she also often integrates more organic processes such as ceramics, mold-making and casting, adding complexity to the story she is telling.
The end result is lighting fixtures, furniture and objects that fall somewhere in between contemporary and ancient.
