Sara Piper Heap
Contemporary Jewellery and Metalwork
Working predominantly in silver, often in combination with other natural materials Sara creates beautiful jewellery and tableware featuring contrasts in colour and texture. Working from her studio in the borderland of Shropshire and North Wales Sara produces her work as one-off pieces: small batches and undertakes private commissions.
As a metalsmith, Sara’s aim is to create display pieces for the table that are visually striking, designed using simple clean lines and regular geometric shapes. Whilst endeavouring to be sculptural, the aesthetic appeal and clarity of form is of primary importance in her work, however an element of function must also be present.
Sara has been working with metal for the last five years. She graduated in applied Arts specialising in Jewellery and Metalwork from Glyndwr University in 2010 and has been running her own business ‘Sara Piper Heap’ since then. Sara exhibits and sells work throughout the UK and also run silver jewellery making courses in Oswestry.
