About

Sarah Wiegersma an artist of Dutch and Irish extraction from the west of Ireland

Sarah’s sculptures employ clay casting techniques. Taking forms directly from organic material and re-works them into sculptural objects that resemble iconic designs of the Victorian era. Sarah's prime interest lies in the way natural patterns and motifs became increasingly popular in decorative art at the cusp of the Industrial Revolution. Themes of separation, loss and reassurance, as represented in everyday cultural artefacts under-pin Wiegersma's practice.

 

Sarah's pieces can be found in the collections of The National Museum of Ireland; The Office of Public Works and The National University of Ireland, as well as many private collections.
