About the Artist
Sophie Cook graduated from Camberwell School of Arts in 1997 with a series of bottles in varying shades of matt turquoise. This was her reaction to the glazes conventionally used in traditional ceramics, which she deemed dull. Sophie now works with a huge variety of tones, which function more than merely as surface decoration, and are integral to Sophie’s designs.
