Sara Radstone was born London in 1955 and studied at Camberwell College of Arts. She works with oxidised stoneware, hand built and raw-glazed with a textured and sometimes painted surface. Many pieces have a body similar to fissured ancient rock, sometimes with disturbing cracks and holes in the skin and a surface pitted and encrusted as if with lichen, or with embedded stripes of coloured clay.
