About Emma West

WPA

I work with porcelain producing two dimensional pieces.

Principally I explore surface texture and impression to achieve an image using glazes to emphasize design.

There are two main strands to my current work:

First is a continuation of a series of botanical impressions, using fresh plants; this has developed from ‘straight’ tiles to a more sensitive and fluid approach to subject and material in recent years.

Individual specimens have evolved to a presentation of the plant with
more context; a still life, a composite form, a landscape. The ‘Allium’
and ‘Garland’ series aim to inject more strength into the work, using
flowers en masse to create impact.

Second is a technique which involves constructing an embroidered image
(using cotton and an open weave cloth) which is then impressed in to the
porcelain. I am interested in printing techniques, particularly etching
and can see many possibilities with this method.

In all of my work I aim to maintain a continuity of style which is very
personal and to explore making techniques borne out of my experience and
interests.
