Sophia Emmett completed a traineeship at the JamFactory, Craft and Design Centre in Adelaide and studied Visual Arts at Monash University, majoring in hot glass, before forming Workshop 85 in Newcastle NSW in 2012.
Sophia enjoys the challenge of designing and making pieces that are intimate, wearable constructions, where each piece is a small sculptural form.
Her works have evolved from her innovative approach to materials, combined with a fascination of the relationship between texture and form.
