Emma-Kip-799003-platter02-webEmma Kip-portrait01-web


Emma explores storytelling, narrative and personal experiences to capture feelings and emotions about her memories and encounters. She creates ceramic forms that are decorated with intricate illustration and imagery, using themes of wildlife, nature and botanical. Her works are either thrown on the wheel, or hand-built using coils or rolled slabs. She then layers white or black slip that are added to the surface of the clay. Afterwards, detailed designs for surface decoration are caved into the layer of slip, using a technique called sgraffito to create complex illustrations. Lastly, a layer of simple clear glaze is applied.
