|Sioban Coppinger FRBS|
Sioban Coppinger has been a professional sculptor for thirty years, initially in the field of public sculpture. Her work is inspired by what she calls "our entanglement with the natural world". She observes people and animals with an affectionate, and sometimes wry, eye. Sioban studied sculpture at Bath Academy of Art and subsequently studied bronze foundry techniques in Italy. She has carried out an impressive number of commissions for public places.
Sioban has won a commission to make a sculpture for a new Marie Curie Hospice in Springburn, Glasgow. Reflecting the nature of palliative care, Sioban made a flurry of white birds from hand prints cast from hospice users and staff and made into bronze, "interconnected by a touch of wing here and a glance of beak there".
