Sadie Clarendon grew up on a ranch in Wyoming, immersed in the DIY aesthetic and frontier ingenuity of outsider art. She discovered clay as a production potter for Piney Creek Pottery from 2015-2017, finding joy in physical and creative labor and drawing strength from the landscape and historical detritus of the West.
Sadie has attended work-study programs at Penland School of Craft, interned at Anderson Ranch Arts center, received a post-baccalaureate from Utah State University in ceramics, and worked and interned at the Archie Bray Foundation for the
Ceramic Arts. She currently operates out of a studio in Laramie, Wyoming. Her work is sold in galleries nationally and occasionally online at sadiewinter.com
“My studio practice is an exercise in joy. Through scale, form, and surface, I elicit intense tactile responses and engagement from the user. Vivid surface textures and colors, nontraditional materials in conjunction with clay, motion, and scale are methods I use to heighten functional forms. My pieces have a bit of unruliness built into them, a tension between “use” and “play.”
I build surprising and delightful objects, objects that reference familiar and nostalgic things; and make work that engages the user to handle it with care, thoughtfulness, and a sense of humor.”
