About De Nada
Sarah Rossiter founder of De Nada Ceramics has a background in fine arts graduating from Whitecliffe Collage in Auckland with a BFA in 2006. Sarah has been making ceramics since 2014, originally under the tutorage of ceramicist Valerie Restarick who taught her to throw at her studio in Melbourne, Australia. Over the last four years she has exhibited in both New Zealand and Australia as well as selling works now held in private collections in both countries. In 2016 she attended an artist residency in Oaxaca, Mexico where she learnt to hand build under the instruction of local artisan Rolando Regino Porras. She spent six
months in 2017 making ceramics in the desert of Mparntwe (Alice Springs) in Australia and has recently returned to New Zealand to reside in Wellington. Sarah is an interdisciplinary artist and often includes ceramics in installation works. She creates thrown and hand built pieces, functional as well as sculptural from stoneware and high fire clays using gas and electric firings.
PS: While Sarah is super careful with your ceramics that she fires – there is a small chance that some pieces could crack in the kiln, which is out of her control and just the nature of ceramics! If a piece of your pottery cracks we unfortunately cannot issue any refunds.
For this particular class – the estimated time for pottery to be ready is about 2 months.
Tickets are non-refundable. Last minute cancellations/refunds mean that the awesome makers running these workshops are left out of pocket – so please only sign up to this workshop if you know you can make it.
