Biography

Sara Henry was born in a small village on the west coast of Alaska along the banks of the Kuskokwim River. Surrounded by wide arctic tundra plains; nature and animals were her companion. Henry, her two sisters, and their dog spent the days exploring the land and the wild things that grew and lived there. Unsettled, her family moved throughout Alaska, eventually finding home among the trees of Arabian Lane.

Sara received her BFA from the University of Alaska Anchorage and her MFA from the State University of New York at New Paltz. There, she discovered new and exciting ways of building complex sculptures using ceramic casting slip, combustible materials, oxides, and metals. Current events, ontology, existentialism, and geology are motivations for concepts, techniques and material choices. Her work is a formal inquiry and material exploration that delves into the connections between humans and nature and investigates our history and our surroundings.
