Art of the Bath

Art of the Bath

This is a beautiful collaborative project where I was commissioned by Victoria & Albert, House of Rohl, UK to create three sculptures to inspire a new bathroom collection named Seros consisting of a stunning flowing bath, a surface sink and a podium sink.

I carved the sculptures by hand to create the original forms and worked closely with Declan Aldridge, the Product Designer for Victoria & Albert Baths who sensitively designed the collection respecting all of the lines and curves of my original forms.

The Seros collection was pre-launched in London Design Week in Chelsea Design Centre, London with the official launch held in Milan in the Milan Design week.

Water sculpted in form

Seros is a unique collaboration between Victoria + Albert and British sculptor, Sophie-Elizabeth Thompson.

Inspired by Sophie’s sculptures, the collection embodies the energy and movement of water through organic, fluid
forms. Each piece in the collection is extraordinary and beautiful in itself.

Sophie-Elizabeth Thompson and the origin of Seros

Sophie-Elizabeth Thompson is a British artist working in Barcelona. Her creative work is exhibited all over the world, in galleries and public spaces. She says that her best work comes from ‘the feeling of absolute calm when I’m creating in my studio – whether I’m drawing or carving, I am not thinking about anything and feel completely at peace and happy’. This sense of tranquillity is reflected in the Seros designs, making it the perfect collection for a spa or wellness bathroom.

«I live by the sea, and took photos of how the sea rests against the sand; how the wind affects and sculpts the sand. It leaves these beautiful, calm, flowing indents. The feeling of the movement and the natural marks that are left, are what I tried to capture in this collection.»
