Sally¡¯s large ceramic sculptures focus on form, positive and negative space, texture and line. Her work is hand built using an earthenware clay body and incorporates incising and carving to add heavy texture and patterning. Her emphasis is what she can do with clay.
Currently she is exploring the idea of disguised eccentricities. ¡°I am interested in how we as individuals require a certain outward appearance in order to function in society and of course the tension that creates. This translates into my sculptures by using exaggerated flowing, spiky, baroque inspired forms to represent eccentricity, covered by an all over white glaze to act as a disguise.¡±
