Emily Gardiner

The physicality of matter and the convergence and collision of materials is at the heart of Emily’s sculptural ceramic work, whether exploring underlying elements of chaos and order, symbiosis and growth or the physical structure of glaze.  


Driven by a passion for experimentation and a desire to push materials to the limit, she embraces unpredictability;  'To control every element dilutes the energy in a piece; there needs to be a dialogue with the material for it to be interesting to me.  I think of myself almost as a ceramic explorer, always searching and testing new ideas and possibilities.'
