About Me

A bit about me.....Sarah Cain

I love all things whimsical and fun. I am drawn to the irrepressible joy and complexity of the natural world and feel restored whenever I am surrounded by nature. It gives me such peace and contentment, whether in a field, near woodland or by the sea. The more remote and rugged the landscape, the happier I am. I studied textiles and fashion at Liverpool before volunteering, later working and exhibiting in art galleries. I always enjoyed sculpture during my time at university and now working with sea glass and recycled silver my work is evolving again to be more sculptural.   I work with bronze, silver and copper. I combine them with semi- precious stones and recently sea glass found on my many trips to the Scottish and North Yorkshire coast; not far from my northern family.

 

I derived a technique enabling me to produce hand carved moulds from which I create pendants of birds of prey, garden birds, foxes and hares and other wildlife. Each piece is taken from an original drawing it then goes through a process of being dried, sanded and fired with a blow torch or kiln fired, sanded, antiqued and finally polished. I sign each piece with a little running hare. 

I show my work on an ongoing basis in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire Galleries and delightful boutique shops as well as here on my website and selected craft and trade fairs.
