Sarah Colson explores making the ordinary extraordinary by elevating the potential of objects and materials.
The focus is to create visions and experiences of beauty. Projects pay homage to unusual selections of materials and colours; their origins and aesthetics are defined by their detail. Collaborations with an increasing variety of crafts people as well as utilising their knowledge for industrial processes, allows the outcomes to evolve through a process of making.
Beyond this Sarah has an evolving body of research that explores the ideas of community. She spends time getting to know the people, the places they're from and their traditional and not so traditional crafts. With sensitivity towards the communities needs, Sarah creates bodies of work that come from the communities for the communities. This research informs the commercial practice whenever possible.
