Emma designs and creates handmade ceramics in her Brighton studio, specifically focusing on slipcasting in porcelain. Her functional homewares are often based around architecture, incorporating precise, angular forms and a degree of buildability into the pieces.
This project explores a creative approach to mould-made ceramics by using different combinations of a limited number of shapes and forms to create a variety of different final pieces. Developing on past project themes including buildability, collage, changeability, stackable forms, and combinations of material types, including use of both pre-existing components such as cork, and newly created components such as wooden dowel. Each piece is stamped with a number code on the base which describes the mould parts used to create the form.
