Emily graduated from Bristol Polytechnic with a degree in Ceramics. A move to the countryside from London in the late 1990s signalled a change in Emily’s work. Architectural influences gave way to organic ones. The rolling hills and ploughed furrows of North Hampshire were reflected in the carved lines within the pots. Inspiration was also drawn from found objects such as knapped flints and old metal cogs.
Emily is a Crafts Council selected maker and a member of the Craft Potters Association.
