Sara Cox and Delilah Pottery...

My friend Sara Cox is an inspired ceramic Artist, her company is Delilah Pottery. Sara is inspired by nature and the work of William Morris. (Morris was an influential designer who was part of the 1860's Pre-Raphaelite movement and is the creator and founder of the "Art's & Crafts" style, that we still love today.

Sara's work reflects her deep love and passion for nature

and the natural world. Her studio is nestled in her large overflowing and flowering garden. The garden is filled with butterflies, and many different types of birds. Her studio is organized, and filled to full with her beautiful work. She has created a "Woodcut" style in designing her beautiful Vessels, Bowls, Plates and Vases. Whether it is porcelain or terracotta pottery the effect is dynamic and absolutely hers. She throws her pots and vessels and then painstakingly etches onto the somewhat wet clay her nature inspired designs. Using a simple color palette suits her designs and creates a strong graphic look. She is a talented and charming person who shows her work around the state of Maine and is blissfully happy in the environment she has created to live and work on her "ART". Sara Cox can be reached through this site, send me an email today. I love, love her work, loverly!

I have several Delilah pieces. I like to think that Sara's pure heart comes through in her work.
