Emily-Kriste Wilcox - Short oval vessel in navy blue with brown joins
Emily works from her studio in Birmingham, and has been a professional ceramicist for over 15 years. As a specialist in handbuilding, she has developed her ceramic practice to create pieces suitable for interior décor, with an emphasis on bringing elements from the outside world into the home.
Using a painterly approach, each of these slabbuilt ceramic vessels holds an abstract interpretation that can often be attributed to the landscape. Blues, greens and greys predominate the colour palette, with splashes or accents of colour to punctuate the otherwise subtle surfaces.
Coastal colours feature regularly in the collections - with strong navy blues or muted tonal combinations of soft blues reminiscent of the sky and sea; others are slightly bolder or with a focus on greenery that may be more representative of those colours you would find across the hills or amongst the garden.
Emily exhibits regularly across the UK, is a selected professional member of the Craft Potters Association, and a full member of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen.
