Biography: Bob Emmett

‘I studied at Ipswich School of Art and Lowestoft College of Further Education in the 1970s, then worked as a freelance ceramics designer for various potteries in Hampshire during the 1980s. I was an Art and Design technician and part time lecturer at Portsmouth School of Art, (now University of Portsmouth) during the 1990s.

I have always had a fascination of the sea, its moods and movement, so I try very hard to get a sense of movement in my work. Long term influences have included Arabic writing, Celtic knot-work designs and that all time staple Art Nouveau

I mostly work in stoneware but am wrestling with porcelain. The translucent quality gives so many more possibilities . Glazes are matt or satin, occasionally using lustres.

Sizes vary between 4 cm to 35 cm in height, and prices range from £30 to £500.’
