�It always feels as if the next piece wil...l be really good, the excitement of playing with the forms never goes away. Ideas breed like rabbits. Mostly these days I make bodies. People are so varied, and the human form always fascinating. I could get arrested for staring.'
All the terracotta pieces are made in collaboration with the Bristol potter Rupert Blamire. The ceramic pieces are pressed from a plaster mould, made from Sophie's original designs. After firing, each piece is smoked over sawdust, waxed and polished.
