Emily Gardiner

Emily Gardiner completed her MA at the Royal College of Art only last year, however she previously had a career in interactive media. 

Coming from this background Emily has had a great amount of experience in the digital world and knows the extent to which the modern world is screen based dependent. Combined with her research on catharsis and embodiment of the intangible, as well as her passion for glazes, her pieces convey that sense of disruption and need for release. The contrast between the unglazed white and the coloured glaze allude to a sense of tension but also release.

Emily shows her work internationally.
