About the Maker: Sarit Cohen is a graduate of the ANU School of Art (Ceramics). She completed her Diploma of Education (University of Canberra) and in this period was awarded the Doug Alexander Memorial Award for Decorative Surface. She has completed residencies in Denmark, Switzerland and China. These opportunities have significantly contributed to her work in the areas of porcelain manipulation and casting. She has contributed to numerous group and survey shows over the last 20 years, both nationally and internationally, notably in the USA, Denmark, Hungary and Israel. Her works are held in private and public collections in these countries. Cohen’s work bears the influence of her childhood spent in Israel, and of her Turkish and Indian heritage. Her memories of the desert, its surfaces and dry atmosphere are constantly evidenced in her objects. Together with an increasing curiosity about her Indian background, these form the basis of her research.
She says of her work ‘I feel very much rooted in ceramic history and I am very devoted to and dependent on my material and love the physical part of the whole process with clay and firing.
