Contemporary Metal Animal Sculpture.
A wonderful life sized Kudu, Antelope head sculpture by Sophie Thompson. This wonderful creation incorporates a pair of real antelope horns and has been made as a free standing sculpture.
Sophie Thompson graduated from Exeter College of Art and Design (Plymouth University) in 1992. She creates these marvellous animals from recycled materials. For example scythes can become birds tails, chains – shaggy coats for goats and hedge cutters – crocodile teeth. She is particularly interested in capturing movement.
Sophie mainly works to commission but does exhibit throughout the region. Past commissions range from a life size rearing horse, domestic and exotic creatures and mythical beasts.
