ABOUT THE ART
Sofia works to emphasise the playfulness of the shadows her pieces cast. It gives them an additional dimension, making them feel alive and interesting. The material is always clay but the type of clay varies depending on the glazing and the desired expression of each individual piece. Sofia works mostly with matte versions of glaze since they help to reinforce the shadows created by a sculpture. She tells us that she’s always hunting for new types of glazing that can match and enhance the clays that she works with.

GRAPHICS IN THREE-DIMENSIONAL FORM
Sculptor Sofia Tufvasson started her professional life as a graphic designer but after 20 years she decided to shift her focus to clay and ceramics. Today Sofia is creating beautiful handcrafted sculptures and functional objects from her studio in Stockholm.
Clay has always been a fascinating material for Sofia Tufvasson. Having worked in the two dimensional world as graphic designer, the clay offered her freedom to think and create three-dimensionally. Her inspiration is found in everyday situations and places such as nature or a shape or certain shadow she passes.
