With their joyous, approachable forms and functional nature, Snakebird Designs pieces call for celebration of the everyday. They are made to foster an appreciation of the quiet moments in your life.

Sarah runs Snakebird Designs independently, with sustainability and social justice as core principles that inform her business model. She uses local, found and waste materials in her practice wherever possible, and shares her love of crafts and ceramics by teaching pottery workshops and classes.
