Sara produces wheel-thrown functional ware as well as Judaica in stoneware. Her use of silk-screen printed decoration makes her pottery very distinctive. Each piece of Judaica is one of a kind, embodying the Hebrew script as well as Jewish symbols. Amongst her works are plates decorated with the "Song of songs" and "Genesis", Pesach and Purim plates, Havdalah sets, bowls,
mezuzot and more.
