What Sarah loves about Patersonrose : “Well I’ve just bought some of the grid patterns sheets and duvets, pink for my daughter and grey for my son! So I think your linens are a good example of where I get my pattern inspiration from!”
SOS Ceramics : SOS ceramics is made by Sarah O’Sullivan. Sarah’s pieces are hand built using slab, coil and pinched methods. Her pottery is influenced by her time spent living in Japan, and has a handmade, imperfect aesthetic. Textiles are also a strong influence for the patterns and texture on her pieces.
Sarah lives in Marlborough, she has been making pottery for around 20 years, off and on around her family’s needs (Sarah has five children aged between 21 and 4 years). Sarah has always loved pottery and still has the first piece she purchased as an 18 year old sitting in her kitchen drawer, and frequently used, a terracotta chip and dip platter.
She was lucky that her primary school sat next door to a potter’s studio and the potter gifted a wheel to the school and demonstrated and taught children how to throw. After finishing her teaching degree, Sarah spent a year in Japan, and that is where her love of pottery and ceramics really started to go through the roof. Using stripy and spotty blue and white porcelain bowls, rustic wobbly mugs, gorgeous sake cups, and visiting potters studios gave her the bug to make her own pottery.
When she returned to NZ after her big OE, she enrolled in community pottery classes in Wellington, Nelson, and Marlborough. She has been making and selling her pieces for about six years now. You can see examples of her work on @sosceramics . One of her favourites being the Japanese method called Mishima, which involves waxing the pot, scratching, and then painting and wiping the pot to reveal the design. Sarah’s pieces are unashamedly wobbly, imperfect and individual.
Sarah hopes that her pieces bring joy to daily life, in the same way that she loves and enjoys other potter’s work, and may they last as long in the cupboard as her trusty platter has!
