Sarah Anderson is a full time ceramic artist based out of Indianapolis,  Indiana. For the last few years since graduating from Ball State University,  she has been creating work and teaching at multiple different art centers,  as well as virtually. The majority of her time is spent at her studio creating  her functional pieces and selling online, in stores, and galleries around the  United States. The technique she uses on the surface of her pottery is  called Sgraffito, or the Italian word for scratching. Her work is inspired by  gestural characters that tell different narratives on each piece.

Artist Statement

I carve narratives into the surface of my functional pottery pieces  through the technique called sgraffito. I use whimsical characters and  illustrations as my imagery. I’ve slowly begun working in sculptural  elements to my functional ceramics, giving more life to each piece. I  

believe each pot has a personality, and it’s my job to find it. I’m inspired  by the climax of a story, and the reactions that this brings. The gestures  of each character are thoughtful, and tell each of their moods in the  narrative. When I create a conversation, no matter what that  conversation holds, I feel I have created a successful piece of art.
