Slip Casting

Emma makes much of her work with slip casting; a ceramic forming technique for pottery especially for shapes not easliy made or possible on a wheel. The process involves a liquid clay slip being poured into plaster moulds. The clay is left to form a layer, the cast, on the inside of the mould.

Wheel Throwing

The traditional way of making pottery, throwing on the potters wheel. Emma's wheel was a welcome addition to her studio in March 2021, and she spends hours practicing each week, turing the best attempts into mugs for you.

Slab Building

To make these striking large serving platters Emma uses a process called slab building. One of the most accessible pottery forming techniques, the clay is rolled out with a large rolling pin, between two slats, and shaped over a form and then trimmed.
