Sophie Bennett

Sophie Bennett is a graduate of De Montfort University and is now based in Northampton. From wedging clay and throwing the desired forms, to mixing and pouring glazes, every part of the ceramics process provides instant feedback from the materials Sophie uses. She is largely inspired by fine details and textures, particularly those found in Victorian Gothic architecture.

Combining elements from her own illustrations, these pieces formed a larger ‘Curio Collection’ of eclectic handmade vessels, exploring the ideas of ‘twisted antiques’ and memento mori, creating beautiful and unique pieces with a dark undertone. All are wheel thrown stoneware decorated with a range of oxides, glazes, decals and lustres.
