Emma trained in Silversmithing at the Canberra School of Art in 1999 before transitioning to a career in counselling and community education. While on maternity leave in 2008 she enrolled in a pottery class at her local arts centre. It was love at first sight of clay, and after many years of night classes Emma launched her ceramics design label 'The Seasonal Ceramicist' in 2018.
Emma now works part-time in education and part-time running 'The Seasonal Ceramicist' which expanded in 2019 to provide workshops in the ACT and regional NSW. Emma is passionate about sharing the fun of clay with other people and providing a supportive, relaxing environment in which you can learn.
This project is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
The Wired Lab is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
