Emily Lawlor

of Cirencester, UK

A professional designer/maker based in Gloucestershire, Emily graduated from Chelsea College of Art with a first-class honours degree specialising in mosaics and ceramics. Emily was brought up in the Cotswolds with Irish parents, her childhood was steeped in fairytales, poetry and a sense of magic - a wonder for the natural world.

In her studio practice, Emily works exclusively with reclaimed vintage china. Inspired by birds – fascinated by wings, feathers and flight, she enjoys the resonance of working with this reclaimed material - each bird or wing is handmade from carefully chosen china including Spode, Burleighware, Alfred Meakin and modern makers like Emma Bridgewater. Her work often includes makers’ marks inset against the colours and patterns, a nod to the fading tradition of china production in Stoke On Trent.
