   Sarah Graeme is an emerging ceramic artist currently based on T’Sou-ke and Pacheedaht Territory on Vancouver Island (Shirley, BC). She received her BFA from NSCAD University (2021). Sarah’s work combines ceramic forms with plant fibers using weaving and basketry techniques. This combination and overlap in craft mediums and ways-of-making serves as a personal reflection in the context of materials, relationships, and place.

Her work is created intuitively as a conversation with materials, considering where they have come from, how they were processed, and exploring the relationship and responsibilities inherent in using them.

   Sarah has taken part in several international residencies including Skælskor, Denmark (2023) and Puebla, Mexico (2018) as well as exhibiting in several solo and group shows across Canada, and most recently has been the recipient of two Creation Grants from Canada Council for the Arts (2021, 2023).
