Sarah Oakman

"I'm driven by 1940's and 50s design - captured in a look that points forward"

Sarah Oakman is a graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ School of Design on Bornholm.

Her ceramics are characterised by their bold designs with clean lines, and grounded in the Scandinavian design tradition, and she is particularly interested in the texturality of ceramic glazes and surfaces.

For FDB Møbler, Sarah Oakman has developed a range of large-scale ceramic items that combine the minimalist idiom of the 1950s with a modern, stringent look. The scale and graphic silhouette of the products gives them the appearance of monuments, and makes them the perfect icon for an interior design situation.
