Ask For Oompa

Ask For Oompa began in 2010 while Sarah Deasy was at university, making furniture and small objects from timber and 3D printed materials. Sarah’s practice has now evolved to include jewellery making.

Ask For Oompa objects mix traditional craft ideas together with new materials and production techniques. Sarah’s work is strongly based on finding a balance between old and new, and reducing products down to their simplest forms to create timeless pieces.

“Wearable objects stripped back to their essential geometry, simple and timeless pieces with a distinct hand wrought feel. I’m always drawn to the simplicity of geometry, not trying to overcomplicate things, but let the material tell me what it wants to become.” Sarah Deasy
