Thank you to Tatanja from On Jackson St for these beautiful studio photos!


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

Working from her studio on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung land (Coburg North), previously Boon Wurrung Country in 'Australia', Sarah spends her days crafting ceramics and other handmade goods for Snakebird Designs.

Sarah's practice focuses on ceramics but also includes macramé, watercolour and printmaking. She runs Snakebird Designs independently, with sustainability and social justice as core principles that inform her business model. She is currently striving to use local, found and waste materials in her practice wherever possible.
