Sarah completed a four year residency in the metal studio at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto.
Sarah has been exploring the history of lace and it’s context in the history of fashion. Much like jewellery lace was not only used as a decorative element but also as a symbol of prestige and wealth. Lace was transferrable from one article of clothing to another making it’s value transferrable and it could easily transform clothing to follow different styles of fashion. By casting actually pieces of lace and playing with the ideas of texture and pattern Sarah creates modern day lace collars, stomachers and cuffs that explore the relationship between delicate, airy lace and the heavier weight of metal.
