Brianna Sopourn is a visual artist who uses ceramic materials to produce faith-based sculptures. The transformative nature of clay has fascinated her since her first encounter with the material. To create intentional objects from something as simple as mud sparked a fire in her imagination. God placed an intense love of clay in her heart, which led Sopourn to earn a Bachelor's in Fine Arts with a concentration in ceramics from Florida Atlantic University. She is currently continuing her studies there in the ceramic Post-Baccalaureate program. Sopourn is a faculty member at the Coral Springs Museum of Art, sharing her passion for ceramics with people of all ages. This position is dear to her as she teaches at the museum in which she learned her love for art as a young child. Though versed in various media such as printmaking, painting, sculpture, photography, and collage, Sopourn employs clay as a building material due to the endless potentiality of the ceramic medium. Clay allows freedom to create three-dimensional forms birthed from the imagination that would otherwise be unrealized visions. Sopourn deliberately designs structures that will enhance her building skills as well as challenge the limits of the material's stability. Conceptually, her work provides abstract ideological concepts physical forms. Her newest series centers around her reflections on how to communicate Biblical and spiritual teachings through shape, color, and form. Sopourn's artistic practice is founded on Biblical study, and she intends to invoke an emotional response and spiritual stirrings within onlookers.
