Sarah Grieve is the daughter of Stephen and Carol Grieve, founders of Crail Pottery.

Sarah started making pots at an early age (3) and has been busy creating ever since! After leaving school Sarah started an apprenticeship at Crail Pottery, learning from her father Stephen. After a spell working in an Australian pottery for Ted Watson, she returned to her favourite place in the world – Crail, to continue learning her trade.

In 1995 Sarah set up her own business, Crail Ceramics. Her brother Ben set up Crail Earthenware and together with Crail Pottery they became a co-operative.

Sarah has a “potter’s mate” in Jude Gallon. Jude helps with everything from decorating, clay prep, kiln packing and running the showroom. Jude makes a range of birds, houses and sea creatures. Louise Wedderburn works with Sarah to create beautiful one-off designs painted on platters and bowls and some of the ranges, ie Japanese fish, blackbirds, thistle and blue and white east neuk. Sarah and Louise have been friends since primary school. The work they create together is unique and special.
