The work of Sophie Woodrow is both mystical and eccentric.
She takes the art of porcelain figurines to a surreal place, one that is inhabited by species not yet discovered.Based in Bristol, United Kingdom, Woodrow is a graduate in the Studio Ceramics program at Falmouth College of Art who has been working professionally with malleable clay materials since 2001.Using an intricate, labor-intensive technique, each piece is hand-built, involving coiling, incising and impressing to create a delicately textured surface.Her work has been inspired by her interest in the Victorians as the first generation who chose to define nature as a spirit of wild curiosity, tinged with fear, turning each piece into a highly romanticized work of art.Woodrow’s sculptures are not visitors from other worlds, but the ‘might-have-beens’ of this world. Each creature has eyes and a story of its own it wants to share.
