Sasha Wardell is known for her pioneering approach in moving forward the traditional process of bone china production. She is recognised internationally for her work, and her innovative approach, a focus based on taking an age-old craft to a higher level. Her carefully produced distinctive work embraces and reflects contemporary taste and lifestyle. Each piece is individually made using bespoke advanced industrial processes that Sasha has personally developed.
Sasha’s hallmark style, a distinctive combination of pure white slip cast bone china, treated with unique decorating techniques and finished in a carefully chosen palette of muted, subtle colours, has made her work highly sought after by private collectors, museums and contemporary art galleries worldwide.
Sasha says, "Bone china is a very seductive material to work with, possessing qualities of intense whiteness, translucency and strength. It is a very ‘single-minded’ clay, which forces the maker to work with clarity and precision. My particular interests lie in the translucent properties of this material and the differing degrees of luminosity and colour response possible. And so, I have adapted the industrial techniques, normally associated with the traditional bone china production of mould making and slip casting, to suit the studio environment whilst keeping these time-honoured skills alive."
