SARAH F CRUZ
Sarah discovered her love of clay hand-building during her studies at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota under the tutelage of Victoria Christen. Although she explored other mediums towards a Studio Art minor, clay left an enduring impression. Sarah ultimately returned to the art several years later, after relocating to San Francisco, continuing to expand her knowledge and practice various techniques through community handbuilding classes offered in the city. It was through these classes that her “pod” obsession sprouted. Eventually she ended up at The Clay Studio where she was able to rent her own space to further focus on the form and also begin sharing her work via Artspan’s annual Open Studios. Sarah found a great community of fellow artists at this space, and when the studio closed in 2011, she joined them at their new place called “sfclayworks” in the Bayview neighborhood. While art is not her day job, Sarah considers it an integral part of life and she hopes her work inspires others to nurture their own creative spirit.
