Project Description

 “Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” 

Leonard Cohen.

I’m Sophie of Sophiestuff pottery. I grew up in British Columbia and spent much of my childhood outdoors exploring the mountains. After University, I travelled throughout the United States of America. Ten years ago, I settled on Oregon as my home so I could continue my childhood love of exploring the outdoors.

I make Sophiestuff pottery, on the weekends, out of my home studio in Portland. Sophiestuff pottery is fully functional pottery suitable for everyday use. My pottery features whimsical characters, animals and designs that I hope will make people smile every time they use it. The goal of my art is to make people happy and remind them of a simpler time when life wasn’t so hectic. Every day can be a reset.

When I’m not at the job or making pottery, I can be found hiking with my husband and our two dogs, Margaret and Panzer, or working in the small garden that surrounds my home. I hope to be a full time potter someday.
