Emilie Taylor with her Old Masters inspired ceramic works

Up and coming ceramic artist Emilie Taylor is one of the most exciting new additions to the Affordable Art Fair this spring and gave a special featured interview for the Affordable Art Fair blog. Her pots, heavily subject-driven and created using heritage craft processes, have received much acclaim and will be shown in Battersea amongst Cynthia Corbett Gallery’s coveted selection of Young Masters.

Emilie is a Ceramic Artist working from her studio in Sheffield. Her large scale ceramics use heritage craft processes, particularly traditional slipware, to interpret and represent post-industrial landscapes. Emilie is interested in the pot as container and metaphor for how we seek to contain different communities within society. Beyond the studio she works with the communities represented in her work, and through interdisciplinary projects hopes to apply the alchemical quality of ceramics in a socially engaged context.

Emilie has completed residencies in the UK and abroad, and has exhibited at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Ruthin Craft Centre, Gallery Oldham and the Arts & Crafts House Blackwell. Her work is included in public and private collections.

The Young Masters is pleased to show a special selection of Emilie Taylor’s work at the Affordable Art Fair, Battersea 9-13 March 2016.
