Sophie

Sophie  joined the group after the 2019 introductory class and has pushed the boundaries of the material that covered.

Here are three sterling silver rings she has made.  They have been textured with the rolling mill, one with sandpaper, and two with wire mesh.

Sophie has then been inspired by the fold forming technique.  ‘My flowers are made with copper sheet, passed through the rolling mill to make heistad cups, and fold formed leaves made by forging on the open side, held in a piece of naturally coloured recycled copper hot water tank’.
