Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Lightness of Being

As the waves flow in to a sandy shore they create ripples of movement that softly shift and change.
Seeking moments of calm in our lives requires us to lean in to the ebb and flow, accepting the transient nature of life.
Tranquility is not a static state to be sought, but a beautiful, temporary moment in an ever changing world.

​Pairs beautifully with Peaceful Awakening, from the series Subtle Nature

Artist Profile

Born: 1984

Hometown: Aylesbury

Based in: Stokenchurch

Saskia Saunders creates handwoven sculptures for those who seek a natural sanctuary in their lives. Her work explores the tranquillity, wellbeing and freedom felt when spending time in woodlands and forests.
Using plant-based materials such as paper, hemp and linen, she utilises the structural qualities of the yarns to craft minimal, textural pieces.
By bringing the ancient craft of weaving into contemporary form, she is addressing our way of life in the Anthropocene. Saskia’s work shares a vision of striving for a positive future for ourselves and our world, by living more sustainably, in harmony with nature.

Saskia exhibits her work worldwide with galleries such as Amelie in Paris, Contemporary Crafts Centre in Hong Kong and Ruup & Form in London. She studied weaving at the University of Brighton and lives and works in Buckinghamshire, England.
