Sarah Gilbert

Sarah Gilbert’s work investigates the sensuous form of the object in its immediate capacity as materialized human history.  Objects, thus conceived, cease to function as passive by-standards of the human experience, and instead take on the active role of simultaneously recording and creating our hopes and anxieties.  Drawing on the histories of craft and industry, her work examines the ways in which objects structure our perceptions of the world and our place within it.  Sarah received a BFA in glass from the Rhode Island School of Design, and a BA in Art Semiotics from Brown University.  She currently lives and works in Seattle, WA.
