Pattern Inspiration By Sarah Pike

I came across the beautiful work of Sarah Pike a few months ago on instagram. When I recently learned she’d be having a show in Vancouver I jumped at the chance to purchase one of her pieces. The mug is what I came away with after doing a super quick drive-by visit to her opening last week. Many pieces were sold within five minutes of the start of the show, which is amazing.

I love to have handmade things in my home as much as possible, and mugs are at the top of that list. This Japanese textile pattern is a favourite of mine and use it in my own work – paper and stitching both – so it’s pretty special to have this mug.

Sarah’s teapots are also pretty spectacular pieces of art with their hand stamped patterns and elegant shapes. One day I hope to acquire one of her teapots to go along with my lovely mug.
