Hi! My name is Sarah Catherine Maxwell and I am the New Jersey ceramics artist behind Sarah Catherine Art. I have always been interested in art ever since I was a little girl. However, my interest in ceramics did not start until December two years ago. I was chosen for a leave replacement job as a high school ceramics teacher. Since I wanted a job, I took it even though I had never really used clay before. After the job ended in December, I decided to take a Christmas break three-day wheel throwing pottery workshop to get a better understanding of it. That workshop sparked my infatuation with ceramics. For the past two years I have not stopped taking ceramic classes and pursuing different techniques. My business got started because I no longer had room for all of the handmade ceramic pieces in my house. I sell because I need room to make more!
My latest obsession is with raku ceramic firing. The process of making a raku piece is very involved and keeps you engaged the entire time. I especially love that the artist only has so much control over the colors and patterns. Each time the piece comes out of the raku pit, the finish is a surprise.
My goal for my business is to one day be able to fully pay for my art with my art. Marketspace Vendor Events provides me with the opportunities I need to get my art out in the community.
Sarah Catherine Art will be at these upcoming events!
