Sophie studies at the Chelsea School of Art, and currently sells and exhibits all over the country. She has always been influenced by medieval art and design, which is reflected in her work. Using simple shapes, she slip casts and builds everything using earthenware casting slip and semi porcelain clay. She creates different textures by cutting into the wet clay and by using gloss, semi opaque and matt glazes. Finally she adds gold and platinum precious metals as well as mother of pearl lustre. Each piece is then fired three times.
