ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sarrah Hurst Groves begin taking pottery classes at the young age of fifteen. Her father, an artist in his own right, first introduced her to the art and encouraged her to continue refining her skills as an artist.
After she graduated she lived and worked on the west coast for ten years and then moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma where she worked in a creative capacity as the Business Events Director for a Fortune 500 Company. There in Tulsa she raised two beautiful children; her greatest accomplishment by far. She left the corporate world to live her dream of being a full-time potter.
Sarrah has had opportunities to studied under several accomplished potters. She continues her education thru workshops and self mastery. She currently owns The Pottery Grove and lives and creates at the foot of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. She lives with the love of her life and her yellow lab Maisy, and her Devon Rex Kitty, Benny Bou.
She enjoys all forms of art, loves spending many hours outdoors in our beautiful world and in her pottery studio. Sarrah has great compassion for the injured hearts of humans and finds many ways to love and serve them. Connecting to the earth and all living things is her mission. Her memorial pieces are just one way she honors those life forms and helps those who mourn their passing. She has a deep desire to love, uplift, and connect to all living souls.
