Emily Myers

Emily Myers makes vases and other vessels on the potter's wheel in red stoneware clay and porcelain. She uses carving and faceting techniques, and a wide range of glazes fired in an electric kiln, resulting in striking, variegated matt surfaces.

Strong elegant forms with fine crisp lines and deep colours characterize Emily's work. She draws on both organic and architectural themes. Influences are diverse, from metal objects such as armour to organic forms such as cacti. When grouped together, the pots have an intimacy reminiscent of the still lives of the painter Morandi.

Soon after graduating from Bristol Polytechnic in ceramics, Emily became a Craft Council Selected Maker and a fellow of The Craft Potters' Association. Emily has shown her work in New York, Tel Aviv, Paris and Hamburg. Exhibitions to date have included regular shows at Contemporary Ceramics in London and Beaux Arts in Bath.
