Sophie Southgate is a ceramic artist working in Kent. She studied BA Ceramics at Cardiff School of Art and Design, graduating in 2014.
Crossing the boundaries of art, craft and design, her work explores human-object interaction. She takes inspiration from the universal language of pattern, geometry and colour, and the infinite. Sophie combines multiple methods of making to create highly refined, curious objects.
Making ambiguous objects that trick the eye, Sophie draws an unconscious gaze into conscious thought. She interrupts culturally embedded values and understandings of ceramics by creating optical illusions. Through use of colour, texture and negative space, Sophie’s work playfully tricks the audiences’ perception of weight, what is 2D or 3D and material.
We have a series of latest pieces available from Sophie's Landscape // Colour Series of works. This piece is a 2018 medium tall piece with textured red to white fade outer with a contrasting orange faceted recess. This piece is now SOLD.
