Emma’s ceramic pieces are all wheel-thrown stoneware, in a range of functional & decorative forms. She works with white clay as a canvas to layer coloured slips and
underglazes in a variety of stencilled, hand painted & sgraffito designs.
Emma takes inspiration from classic tattoo art iconography, influenced by both Western traditional and Japanese designs. By transposing images to the solid ceramic surface, she creates a contrast with the usual context of soft flesh that encourages the viewer to consider tattoos from another angle.
