Artists Statement

Artists Statement

Emily’s handbuilt ceramic vessels explore surface decoration, collage and juxtaposition.  Panels of clay are treated with layers of coloured slip to achieve the desired depth of surface.  Her soft colour palette draws inspiration from the clouds and landscape; the surfaces hold similarities to misty skies, memories of a walk, or a view across the sea. 

Keep updated with news and exhibitions via her website.

Handbuilt individual pieces. Often use a white earthenware clay body which is then high fired.  Layers of pattern and decoration are added at various stages through the use of decorating slips, oxides, glaze, and sometimes enamel transfer and lustres.  Pieces go through up to 5 firings in order to achieve the desired result, with temperatures ranging from 1140 down to 700 deg C
