Drawing on her rural childhood and her world travels, the work of Sarah Lawless represents an intermingling of the wild natural environment and the weathered ancient products of human endeavour, worn away by time and the elements. Her functional porcelain ceramics combine ergonomic usability with a sculptural emphasis on form. Lawless attended the Kootenay School of the Arts (KSA) in Nelson, BC. Lawless was awarded two BC Arts Council Scholarships, received the Purchase Award in the International Orton Cone Box show that toured the USA, and participated in the BC-Tajimi Exchange Exhibition in Tajimi, Japan.
