Sarah Louise McQuarrie is a multi-award winning Scottish designer and maker based in Glasgow, Scotland. She is a recent graduate in BA(hons) Silversmithing and Jewellery from the Glasgow School of Art.
In her practice, Sarah is focused on explorations of light, colour and reflectivity as a way to express emotion and memories into tangible objects. She uses layers of bio-resin and transparent materials to create colourful components, which are set like precious stones into highly polished silver structures that reflect and bounce natural light through the resin. Designed to draw curiousity and conversation, Sarah hopes to trigger memories within the viewer/wearer of her work, in the hopes of sharing and re-connecting once again post-pandemic.
