Sophie Southgate - Landscape//Colour Vessels
SS1_LargeBlueBlue.jpg
Artist statement

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.

​Now based in Orpington Kent, working with clay and plaster has become integral to her way of life.  She has recently become the 2017/2018 Ambassador for Ceramics in Europe with Future Light.

Sophie’s practice is an on-going exploration of the object and the vessel. 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.

She discovered her love for clay at Bromley Adult Education Centre evening courses which prompted her to return to full time education.

She studied Foundation Art and Design at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication in Greenwich, graduating in 2011 and has since studied for a BA Honours Ceramics.
