Says Emily of her latest body of work for the exhibition Textura: ” In preparation for this exhibition, I gave myself a moment of pause and reflection on a year that had been defined by seismic shifts. As I sat watching the ocean in my moment of reflection, I saw that with each wave a linear marking was left behind like a piece of cloth draped along the shoreline. My intention with these sculptural vessels is to take the viewer to that place of quiet solitude.
Adopting methods from my years of designing fashion, I drape, cut and manipulate slabs of earthenware clay. As a result of this process a dynamic silhouette flexes and bends in response to my hand; imitating the natural sculpting forces of cyclical wind and water.”
