Emily Hall

Emily is a ceramicist and basketweaver from London. She graduated from Brighton University in 2010 with a first class degree in 3D Materials Practice, specialising in ceramics and wood. 

She has already gained valuable experience of the craft and design industry working with others and assisting respected artists and practitioners such as Sarah Thirlwell, Simon Hasan and Yoyo Design. Most recently she was apprentice to world renowned potter Julian Stair, helping to complete his first solo exhibition 'Quietus' which toured the UK from July 2012 to January 2014. 

Additionally in 2012, Emily was appointed artist in residence at UCA Farnham within the ceramics department and also exhibited her work at Farnham Maltings Festival of Craft as well as other craft fairs and galleries across the country. She was recently awarded funding by the Farnham Maltings to undertake a crafts research project which involved her taking a month long trip to South Africa. 

Research and the inspiration it brings remains a strong influence on her work and how she approaches craft skills more generally.

“I love all the strands to my work and most importantly enjoy that craft is such a sociable practice, whether it is teaching your craft to others or sharing your craft with a customer. So whether you are interested in my work or the work that I do with the elderly I hope you enjoy what you see”
