Good Enough to Eat…
Cake for me has far more significance than just something to eat, it’s the invitation to sit with friends or family and chat, that gift to tell someone you’re thinking of them and that opportunity to just, pause. A symbol of something so normal, the ritual of going for afternoon tea; was for us, fragile, gone in an instant. The physical connections we have with each other cut in a flash, replaced with a digital alternative and now we can see each other again, it’s something so precious.”
Sarah explored combining casting and fusing techniques to recreate cakes, first she started with cupcakes, and then macarons. She loves to explore ways to manipulate glass, how temperature can change the appearance, how combinations can give you a different effect or depth.
Now, for the Collect International Art Fair, as one of the selected Open artists at Somerset House in London this March, Sarah has created a full patisserie counter, pushing the knowledge she’s gained to create some real showstoppers – fresh fruit tarts, a whole cake. Turning this concept into a delicious installation reflective of how we share our love for each other both through the difficult times, and times to celebrate.
