EOT Ceramics is the studio practice of Emily Olivia Tapp - a potter living and working from Cornwall. Emily makes wheel-thrown ceramics from her shipping container studio in Bohls Yard, Penryn. She originally trained at Falmouth School of Art, where she made her own paints using Cornwall’s mineral-rich soils and rock powder pigments. After her degree show, Emily was awarded a graduate residency at The Cornubian Arts & Science Trust (CAST) and during that time, became enamoured with the medium of clay.
Now, Emily makes everyday ceramics intended for daily use. Throwing with Cornish clay sourced in St Agnes, she mixes all her glazes from scratch using raw materials and her own carefully developed recipes. When not in her studio making pots, Emily works as an assistant here at the Byre Gallery!
