Sophie Marsham is a London based sculptor who works with stainless steel, copper, bronze and found objects. At the Chelsea School of Art in London, Sophie trained as a public artist and therefore much of her work is designed and made for installation in buildings or public spaces.
The work usually begins with a surreal medley of raw materials, perhaps some stainless-steel medical equipment, antique chocolate moulds, teeth from large farm cutting machinery, circular saw blades and car suspension springs.
A spring mattress becomes a sheep, garden shears become a bird or cutlery becomes fingers and toes. The sculptures may grow organically as new objects are found or added. Each project is unique in terms of raw material and scale.
