Biography and career

Sophie Lepoivre PepperClay


"Since the beginning of my practice, I maintain a dialogue between turned pieces and sculptures.


They form a common language through the recurrence of the used lands (yellow, black sandstone, porcelain), and spherical shapes, cylindrical or masks. I weave their exchanges by assemblages and accumulations.


The trace is an essential theme in my work. Tear or distortion, it breathes a life of my own parts.


The enamels, from my research, tend to reproduce a volcanic, raw, echoing with the history of each object."



Sophie Lepoivre created PepperClay Ceramic in 2015. She works in a Porte de Charenton workshop in Paris in which she also gives courses and courses in filming and modeling.
