About the course

Sarah Moorhouse

581.jpg Trained as an illustrator and qualified as a teacher, Sara taught in a school for six years before undertaking a Masters programme in ceramics.
Sara’s masters studies identified the subject of her current practice-led doctoral project, which focuses upon the ways

selected arrangements of colour on the surfaces of ceramic vessels affect visual sensation and alter perception of the shape and volume of the form.

Sara is using her practice as an artist as a key method for the study, albeit structured to facilitate exploration, examination and interrogation of outcomes from the investigation. Outcomes are documented, evaluated and discussed aesthetically, using understandings and terms drawn from colour theories, with particular reference to painting, including case studies of artists relevant to Sara’s field of inquiry.

Sara shares a studio with two other research degree students, both also to exchange knowledge and experience methods and to discuss and debate common and individual issues.
