Sarah-Anne Marraffino Artist Bio

Sarah-Anne is a ceramic artist from Gainesville, FL as well as a recent graduate of the University of Florida. Upon receiving her BFA in ceramics, she plans to kick start her ceramic career as a studio artist before pursuing her Masters of Fine Arts in the field. Until then, she will continue to explore the functional vessel and all of its narrative and surface possibilities and perhaps one day come to terms with the "love-hate" relationship she has with Helios porcelain.

 

Sarah-Anne Marraffino Artist Statement

My work is an exploration of surface decoration and graphic imagery on functional vessels. These objects serve as a vehicle for relaying personal narratives to the viewer via illustrated scenes that span across several pieces to create a single tableau of whimisical images. The dialogues between the intimately scaled objects speak about a relationship to domestic life that is both familiar and foreign to me. The imagery romanticizes a suburban idealism that is a manifestation of an altered past recounted by surviving relations. These narratives, suspended between the real and the imaginary, materialize on porcelain ware to exist both tangibly and allegorically.

I enjoy making art. The practice of making and enjoying precious objects has lead me into the field of ceramics where I can explore both 2d and 3d design to create visually interesting and dynamic work. I am currently a student at the University of Florida pursuing my BFA under the instruction of Nan Smith and Linda Arbuckle. Upon graduating I plan to explore what it means to be an artist outside of academia before pursuing my MFA in ceramics.
