Sophie Milne. Melbourne, Australia.
I create tableware and unique ceramic vessels inspired by both natural and urban environments. The basis of these hand-thrown porcelain forms is always functional but at times their sculptural minimalism can suggest a more ornamental purpose.
From observation, reflection and play, my ideas develop through photography, drawing and repetition of the thrown form. I have developed a personal vocabulary in shape, colour and line that rejects the superfluous to create a concentrated harmony between form and surface.
Inspiration comes to me through observation and familiarity. When I spend time reflecting on one small element of my daily existence, be it telegraph poles, geographical markings or a favourite song , my appreciation and understanding of the traits and characteristics of that one thing is heightened. It is this awareness and respect that I attempt to translate in my work.
My aim is to create quiet, minimal, handmade porcelain vessels that return significance and meaning to the object.
