Emily Earps

BA (Hons) Artist Designer Maker: Glass and Ceramics | Class of 2021

Emily creates forms and vessels as a therapeutic and cathartic way to bring joy into her own life as well as spread it to others. A believer that the act of creating art brings healing, Emily feels a piece is only complete when it brings a peaceful satisfaction. The work is created using traditional hand building techniques. Influenced by artists such as Barbara Hepworth, Louise Hibbert and Hideaki Miyamura, Emily’s preferred medium is clay as it allows her a more hands-on experience that leaves her with a deeper connection with the finished pieces.  Botanical structures and organic themes can be found in many of her pieces, whether in the forms they take or the colours and textures of the glazes used, more so in her current series of work, ‘Organic Undertones’ where she tries to capture the idea of continuous energy or ‘Chi’ of the natural world.
