Sarah Tracton

Hometown: Australia

Based in: Melbourne

Lighting is art at Sarah Tracton Studio. The Melbourne-based fine artist handcrafts with 100% Australian porcelain one-of-a kind, bespoke lighting which emit stunning luminous, ethereal and translucent qualities.

Sarah is a multidisciplinary fine artist and bespoke lighting designer. A graduate of the National Art School, she has built a reputation for using innovative ceramic techniques to create bespoke handcrafted lighting that is an intersection of fine art, craft and functional design. Having achieved exceptional results and recognition as a trained fine artist with mastery over her materials, Sarah has refined a niche clay slip poured on plaster slab technique. She fuses innovative cordless technologies with traditional craft processes to create lighting that emits exquisitely luminous and ethereal outcomes when paired with LEDs.
Her creative process involves pairing traditional clay crafting techniques with the finest grade porcelains plus high-end design, manufacturing & fabrication for bespoke architectural lighting applications. She uses Kintsugi golden repair technique, in line with the ethos of circular economy in combating wastage.

Sarah held her solo exhibition, Hearing it for Silence, exhibited at Abbotsford Convent in 2018. She has been a finalist for numerous national awards, including VIVID Design + Decor, IDEA, Craft Victoria Award, Environmental Art and Design Award, Workshopped at the Australian Design Centre and won Peoples Choice at the Macquarie Emerging Artist Prize and was awarded as an AMP Tomorrow Maker in 2020 and is the recipient of Creators Fund via Creative Victoria in 2021. She is a Good Design Award Winner for Lucent Collection in 2021.

Sarah Tracton In The Studio

"Exploring the infinite possibilities and luminosity of porcelain with LED lighting. I undertake the process of Kintsugi technique, where my handcrafted porcelain that has broken during firing is repaired with glue and gold leaf. This process of repair, recycle and reuse combats the environmental impacts of wastage in consumption and production found in mass-produced lighting."
