Emma Johnstone Applied Art
I returned to college at the age of 26 - having had a varied and colourful career in several fields including the music industry, corporate and cable TV. I returned to college in 1993 and I realised I’d made the best decision of my life. Now my time is spent in the studio, doing what I love best. I make raku bowls, vessels and sculptures. They are highly finished pieces, incorporating ground, polished and gilded surfaces and have a precious gem-like quality to them.
1996 University of Westminster - Workshop Ceramics BA (Hons), First Class Honours.

Artist's Statement:
These pieces have evolved from work started while living in Jerusalem. I am interested in the concept of fragments, glimpses and half remembered images of nature. My interest with the bowl form is enduring, and recently my work has been led by the clay and the secrets it hold both above and below the surface. The new work shown here is based on the deconstruction of my earlier pieces. By removing sections of the original forms, new planes are revealed and the form takes on a fresh perspective. I am using the slip resist technique on selected surfaces and contrasting this with gilding and texture.
