Sarah Christie is an artist working in clay. Her practice is motivated by a desire to confront and understand the world we are in, through connecting threads of past and present.  She has a particular interest in the intersections between art and science, and her work often includes public participation and engagement. Clay is a key material because its lineage is embedded in everyday life, yet it is socially and politically charged, is accessible, and has great potential to engage audiences.
