Emily Mitchell is a ceramicist producing hand-built and hand-thrown ceramics from her studio in Norwich. Her work takes inspiration from early English Delftware ceramics with blue cobalt patterns on white tin glaze.
Each of her unique pieces has a whimsical boldness in the shape, and a strong sense of the maker through the painted patterns.
“My work grows out of an interest in everyday and historic objects to tell their own stories. I love narrative and classic fiction and often use literature as a source for ideas. I enjoy looking at and working with museum collections and archives and I am especially interested in the idea of the ‘souvenir’ and creating loaded objects - hand-sized and intimate.”
