Sarah Bak Pottery

My Spotlight


Sarah Bak creates pottery to perk up your table and garden. These pieces are made to bring a bit of beauty into objects you use every day. Made of porcelain, these hand thrown items include mugs, bowls of many sizes and functions, French butter dishes, spoon rests, vases, garden markers and planters. They are hand painted in designs inspired by nature. These are pots made to be used, are microwavable and dishwasher safe. Maybe they will take you back to a simpler time, like visiting your grandmother’s kitchen.
I am really inspired by the phrase: Don’t make something unless it is both necessary and useful; but if it is both necessary and useful, don’t hesitate to make it beautiful. – Shaker Philosophy

While this doesn’t apply to my work 100% as not everything is necessary, it is something that I keep in the back of my mind. The part about “don’t hesitate to make it beautiful” is what stands out the most. If you are going to have things (and who doesn’t) they should be items that you appreciate, use and enjoy.
