Last year Sara Moorhouse was included in Compton Verney's exhibition Seurat to Riley: The Art of Perception, pattern, pointillism and op art which toured to the Holburne Museum, Bath. She won the 2014 Creative Wales Award from Arts Council Wales and used it to make The St. Ives Collection (completed in 2016 and shown in our exhibition space in Cornwall) – a group of 32 bowls with bands of colour inspired by the light and colour particular to St. Ives. We are now showing more recent bowls inspired by St. Ives. She has always been interested in the way colour can alter spatial perception, a phenomenon she first noticed in agricultural landscapes in Wales. For the opening of the new Centre of Ceramic Art at York Art Gallery she exhibited a group of 27 bowls based on the arable landscapes of Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire. Awards include 2009 1st Prize Vessel, Form, Décor Ceramics for Europe Westerwald Prize, Germany; 2006 Welsh Artist of the Year for Applied Arts. Collections: The Devonshire Collection, Chatsworth House; Westerwald Ceramic Museum Hohr-Grenzhausen, Germany.
