B. Northamptonshire 1983
After training at Bath Spa University, Emily moved to Birmingham and set up her first ceramic studio. She has been working as a professional ceramicist for almost 14 years.
As a specialist in handbuilding, Emily has developed her ceramic practice to create pieces that are suitable for interior decor, with an emphasis on bringing elements of the outside world in to the home. These vessels can be broadly categorised into 4 collections: “Coastal & Lake”, “Field & Country”, “Garden & Bloom”, “Pattern & Surface”, with each one remaining individual yet with the ability to balance when grouped as a larger composition. See a selection of available work here.
All vessels are slabbuilt using a white earthenware body which is then treated to layers of decorating slip to achieve the desired depth of surface. Pieces often go through multiple firings and as each is individual, the process of building up the surface varies accordingly.
Emily exhibits regularly across the UK, is a selected professional member of the Crafts Potters Association, and a full member of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen.
She has recently been awarded BEST ARTISANAL INTERIOR DECOR PRODUCTS 2019 in the SME news Midlands Enterprise Awards.
