Contemporary Metal Horse Sculpture.
A wonderful medium sized sculpture by Sophie Thompson of a horse. The horse has been made from recycled metal.
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.
