After more than a decade designing for the fashion industry sculptor Emily Hamann switched disciplines; replacing the soft and often unpredictable medium of fabric with a more malleable, grounding material that is clay.
Emily’s artistic practise is primarily concerned with the contrast between soft organic forms and sharp sinuous lines. A practice informed by a love of draping fabrics on a mannequin, often involving the cutting and deconstruction of classical shapes to be reinvented to create unique and entirely unexpected
Says Emily of her work: “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.”
