Jenny Pope is based at the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.
After studying science, and employment as a social worker, she trained in ceramics at Edinburgh College of Art, and then graduated with an M.A. in Sculpture.
Her sculptural pieces are inspired by beachcombing, the study of bone structures – and geology. She uses mainly ceramic materials, and has developed an environmentally-friendly concrete using limecrete and recycled aggregates for larger forms.
In ‘Leaf Signature’ exhibited here at Mellerstain, Jenny celebrates the unique form and curves often overlooked in a simple shape.
She has won several awards for her innovative work, and exhibits widely in the U.K.
