Sioban Coppinger has been a professional sculptor for thirty years. In the first half of her career Sioban established a reputation in the challenging field of Public Sculpture. Since moving to Lambourn in 1990 Sioban has created a constant stream of commissioned work as well as exploratory new work for exhibitions.
Sioban’s work is inspired by our entanglement with the natural world. She often combines an acute observation of people, and animals with an affectionate, and sometimes a wry view of both. Pete Penfold, Sioban’s husband, has transformed a Victorian Cottage into ‘The Muse’, an enchanting purpose built studio, with a foundry in the garden. The studio is open by appointment, where finished pieces and work-in-progress can be seen.
Throughout the year Sioban runs workshops in a variety of mediums including soft ground etching and wax and wire. Please see here for Sioban’s current workshop schedule. As of Fri 21 Nov the availability is as follows:
