Sophie Southgate creates bespoke handcrafted ceramic sculptures for the home. Every one of these affordable-luxury ornamental objects is unique, taking days to refine and finish to the highest standard.
Sophie’s practice is an on-going exploration of the object and the vessel, in both the contexts of sculpture and functional ceramics. Her work moves between the boundaries of art and design, challenging our preconceptions and understanding of contemporary ceramics. She takes inspiration from the landscape, paring it back to abstract interpretations of space through basic geometric forms. She utilises colour and negative space to engage the audience and play with perception. Her work is ambiguous in nature and open to interpretation, raising questions about material and process.
