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?’
Having found her niche, Emily now mainly focusses on creating beautiful handmade tools for textile and fibre artists. Dropping the 'fine art' has given her greater freedom to explore the potential of given functional forms through surface and glaze combining function and form to create uniquely beautiful pieces with a purpose.
