Sarah Rayner lives and works in Wootha, Gubbi Gubbi country, Sunshine Coast Hinterland Queensland. As an artist she predominately works sculpturally creating collections of porcelain objects, underpinned by an interest in plant reproduction and the aesthetics of museology. Her particular interest lies in the reproductive organs of plants and the by-products of plant reproduction … fruits and seedpods.
Sarah graduated with an honour’s degree from the University of Southern Queensland in 1997 majoring in textiles. She exhibited, tutored and lectured within this field of practice for over 20years. Over the last six years, Sarah has used porcelain as a medium from which to translate observations of her local environment. Porcelain has fascinating historic and cultural associations to alchemy and desirability which Sarah draws on within her practice making correlations between the precious nature of the material and her subject matter.
