She makes each work by hand using slab building and carving techniques. Hand-coloured clay is inlaid into white porcelain or stoneware to create patterns embedded within the piece, meaning that no two are the same.
Before working with ceramics, Emily had a stretch of independently curating and working with artists, before setting up a shop and gallery in Oxford championing early and mid-career artists, independent designers and makers.
With a background in fine art painting, Emily returned to making a few years ago and fell in love with the grounding nature of clay as a way to explore ideas in a functional and mindful way. The natural world, as well as architecture and the interaction of object and light, are constant sources of inspiration.
