It all began as a way to fill my time as I spent the summer with my Grandparents in the country. A box of crayons and a few sheets of white paper started a legacy that I now call By Sara Hunter, LLC. My name is Sara Hunter and I began drawing and painting at an early age. Every summer, I use to visit my Grandparents and the first thing I would do when I arrived was color in my coloring books and draw whatever my heart desired. After years of drawing, painting and doodling for fun, as well as sharing my paintings with family and friends, I discovered I had a talent for creating beautiful artwork. In 2004, I decided to turn my passion for creating art into a business, which I named By Sara Hunter.I started out painting abstract watercolor paintings until one of my customers requested I take one of my designs and put it on a piece of pottery, a platter. Of course at that time, I did not know anything about pottery and did not know where to start. So, I went to paint at a pottery store, bought a large platter and took a crash course in painting on pottery. After this pottery painting session, I was hooked on pottery. After taking several classes to learn how to make pottery, I am now keeping my hands dirty with pottery and have shifted my business from watercolor paintings to doing pottery, exclusively. I enjoy painting coastal and nautical designs for all to see and enjoy! My pottery art pieces are handmade with white earthenware clay, painted with lead-free, non-toxic paints, glazes and are food safe. Please take care to hand-wash your pottery piece. ENJOY!
