Brutes Ceramics


Emma de Clercq – aka Brutes – is a ceramicist based in London. As a novice potter, Emma originally intended Brutes to be a creative outlet and general antidote to screen-time from her day job in digital media. After falling hard for the medium, in 2016 Emma and a group of like-minded makers founded Clay Collective, a co-operatively run pottery studio. Her ceramics are mostly hand-built, with a focus on minimal, functional pieces with a brutalist edge.
