Emily designs and makes wheel thrown contemporary tableware from her south London garden studio. Her pottery is made by hand using traditional techniques, yet is very much designed for modern living. Each piece is crafted on the wheel, leaving visible the natural throwing rings and ridges to create tactile forms full of movement. Some pieces are intentionally distorted out of their uniform shape to create unique and odd forms.
Emily loves to experiment and develop her own glazes and she is continually drawn to the uplifting palette of the coast. She uses greeny blue and soft oatmeal glazes combined with a rustic iron speckled stoneware clay to create a flecked bird egg effect.
Emily decided to retrain as a potter after an initial career in arts marketing, working at the Royal Academy and Whitechapel Gallery. It was the desire to become the hands-on maker rather than the promoter of art that pushed her to start again and go back to college. From the beginning she was fascinated with throwing and creating beautiful and functional ceramics people could use everyday.
