Emily’s work is a conversation between herself and the clay, tempered with the alchemy of the kiln and glazes to reveal the true forms.
In January 2015 she resigned from her job in a haberdashery to devote herself full-time to her practice as a ceramic artist and designer.
Her influences range from her exploration of textiles (spinning, sewing, feltmaking, etc) to her love of old forgotten buildings and factories being reclaimed by nature. Like the science fiction books she devours, she is constantly pondering ‘what if?’ as she explores the medium of clay and the unexpected consequences of glaze combinations with the sometimes addition of substances such as unwashed beach sand.
She prefers simpler forms to act as canvases for these experiments.
