The vessel is a starting point for exploration of shape, and an interest in the sense of repair and assemblage has informed Emily’s method of construction over several years. The result is multi-faceted pots, rich in movement, energy and aesthetic value. Drawing and painting is integral to the development of the surface treatment of these pots. Panels of clay are treated with layers of coloured slip to achieve the desired depth of surface. The soft colour palette draws inspiration from the clouds and landscape; surfaces hold similarities to misty skies, memories of a walk, or a view across the sea.
