Hello, I'm Sara Hogwood

I live in Canberra, Australia where I create silver jewellery and ceramic objects.

Design doesn’t have to be intricate and overblown. Sometimes simplicity allows a piece to stand out all by itself, or that very simplicity can enhance its surroundings. Picture a simple sterling silver teardrop-shaped pendant against a plain dress or top, or a bowl with a quiet flecked grey finish showing off the colours of the salad within.

I’ve been making quiet, simple designs for a long time: more than twenty years as a potter, less as a jewellery maker. In that time I’ve been taught by experienced and creative makers who have given me skills to explore my ideas, paring them back to achieve my aim of simple, well-designed, well-made pieces.

A potter and a jewellery maker, you ask. How did that come about? Well, I fell in love with clay after taking my young daughter to pottery classes and deciding to give it a go myself. I make my work on the potter’s wheel but for a time was creating porcelain jewellery from slip-cast slabs. Wanting to see if I could make silver mountings for these pieces, I enrolled in a silver jewellery course…and found that I loved working with silver. Instead of combining the silver with porcelain I was off and running with all-silver pieces.

I enjoy both forms of making. Pottery is a slower process: throw a piece, wait for it to dry, bisque-fire it, glaze then fire again. Silver is more immediate – a piece can be started and finished the same day. Both are equally satisfying to me.

If you love minimalist design, simple spaces, clean lines and affordable prices then we have a lot in common.
