Emily Myers creates distinctive, hand-thrown vessels which are carved, faceted and altered, reflecting the ploughed furrows and rolling hills of the rural landscape surrounding her home and studio in Hampshire. She has been described by Emmanuel Cooper OBE as 'quietly celebrating the possibilities of clay'.
Having been introduced to the potters wheel at the age of twelve, Emily went on to study ceramics at Camberwell and then Bristol School of Art. She graduated in 1987 and with the assistance of a Crafts Council grant she set up her first studio in London where she worked for 10 years.
Since moving to Hampshire her work has become increasingly organic. She works mainly with red stoneware clay and a variety of barium glazes. The dry glazes evoke surfaces and textures of plant stems, flints and rusting farm machinery.
Emily Myers is a Crafts Council selected maker and a Fellow of the Craft Potter's Association. Solo exhibitions include Beaux Arts, Bath, and the Contemporary Ceramics Centre in London. Her work has also been shown internationally, including in Tel Aviv, New York, Hamburg and Paris.
