Sonya qualified from the University of the West of England with a BA (Hons) in Ceramics in 1995. Since then, the creative arts have always run alongside her career & family life in many different genres. In 2013 she decided to focus purely on her career in art producing from her home studio in WoT. 2016 has seen the launch of her unique ceramic leaf jewellery and her work is currently sold by Westonbirt Arboretum.
Sonya is inspired by natural forms collected from her garden, local arboretums and her travels. She uses various clay materials to mould from real leaves and decorates them sensitively with glazes and lustres creating unique one off pieces of jewellery. Her collection is extending in to a complimentary table ware collection in 2017, a selection of which will be displayed at the Trail alongside her jewellery collection.
