Jenny Pope

Artist, Maker, Community worker

 

Jenny Pope has a studio at WASPS in Albion Road, Edinburgh. She trained at Edinburgh College of Art, gaining a BA in Ceramics and then graduating in 2005 with an MA in Sculpture.

Her sculptural pieces are inspired by beachcombing, collecting, bone structures and geology. She has a fascination with the inescapable changes that happen in our internal lives and also externally in the natural environment.

She uses a broad range of materials including porcelain, limecrete and found materials and is currently exploring textile processes.

She exhibits regularly in the UK and has won professional development awards, and was a finalist in the 2015 National Sculpture Prize, where she was awarded a Judges Special commendation.

She divides her time between practicing artist and mental health work.
