Portland Sculpture & Quarry Trust

Hannah Sofaer studied sculpture at Goldsmiths, Chelsea and the Royal College of Art.  As Creative Director of the Portland Sculpture & Quarry Trust she has developed a new model for quarry regeneration- where interdisciplinary exchange,is based on the geology that underpins the fragile layer of ecology on which we all depend.

Sofaer works with sustainable use of by-products from the stone industry that can be applied to contemporary garden design, constructing micro climates and habitats that encourage natural colonisation and a greater diversity of species, complimented by sculpture with surface texture, carved designs and lettercutting, creating a sense of discovery through the changing quality of light on stone.
