hi, i’m soph, therefore i blog.
this incarnation started out as a course requirement when i was a mature student at CSAD. i’m now a graduate artist|designer|maker with a small studio at printhaus in cardiff.
i make, show and sell work that could generously be described as ecclectic. if you have long enough i would happily explain the extensive internal logic and intricate woven layers of meaning but the short version is that i like to make pretty things. i bind books and albums on commission, mostly using traditional japanese techniques and materials.
i’ve long kept a journal/blog of my various making projects, more for my processing and reference than anything else, but i learned so much about materials and techniques via random web searches i’m hopeful some of my experiments might one day spark something with someone else.
my previous blog (2005-10) is archived but i don’t think it’s searchable or in categories so content is pot luck now as my titles aren’t the best! there are a couple of free amigurumi patterns linked at the top – bender from futurama is possibly my proudest creation 🙂
i sell direct and via etsy. shop stock is minimal right now due to family commitments but i very much have work for sale – framed photography, artists sketchbooks, enamel jewellery, led lightboxes all awaiting listing – please give me shout if there’s anything on the blog that catches your eye!
i have a portfolio site that hasn’t been updated in far too long
