Sophie Smith studied at Chelsea School of Art and has been exhibiting and selling her ceramics for over ten years. Sophie's quirky and creative ceramics are handbuilt using Limoges earthenware casting slip. She creates different textures and designs by cutting into the wet clay and by using slips as well as gloss and matt glazes. Finally Sophie adds gold and platinum precious metals to create an alluring finish, and each piece is fired three times. Her work has an emphasis on colour and fun!
At iapetus we spend a lot of time carefully sourcing and picking the pieces we offer. Everything you see has been crafted to a high standard, ethically sourced, be that made in the UK or fairly traded from our International artisans, and lastly is quirky and unusual - something which should surprise, delight and inspire you to gift buying greatness!
