Sophie Lavaux


Having grown up among the magnificent landscapes of the Mascarene Islands, I remain fascinated by the extraordinary gardens that only nature can create.

After studying drawing at the decorative arts school in Paris, I worked a lot, inspired by plants in particular.

However, it is the shapes, volumes and structure of natural spaces that appeal to me and it is in sculpture that I express my artistic emotion.

Today, I still maintain an indispensable relationship with nature. As I look for the sense of place in a site, I create stoneware and porcelain sculptures that are both fragile and hard, and try to convey the vast diversity of imaginary landscapes.
