One look at artist Sophie Ryder's hybrid animal sculptures and you'll be whisked away into some mystical world. "I sculpt characters and beings- the dogs, the hares, the minotaurs... are all characters beyond animal form. I am not interested in making a replica," she has said. The charming and remote cottage where she makes her work, featured here, is not far off from the fantasy that it creates. Ryder's studio is located in the countryside of Colin Valley in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds, England, a beautiful but isolated place that rarely sees visitors. On November 20th, she will open her cottage up to the public for a rare showing of her works, including sculpture, plaster works, drawings, among other pieces.
