The traditional English allure of Emilie Taylor’s ceramics portray and contrast her contemporary engraved scenes of women within post-industrial British landscapes.
Taylor’s first wholly commissioned exhibition opened at Gallery Oldham in June, and this new body of work called Edgelands will be opening in the Williamson in Mid April.
Emilie Taylor is a ceramic artist and also a social worker with a degree in Art Psychotherapy. Her work with local communities often informs her practice. Taylor uses heritage craft processes, in particular traditional slipware, to explore and interpret post-industrial environments and their inhabitants. She has had residencies in the UK and abroad, and has exhibited at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Arts & Crafts House Blackwell, and Chatsworth House, Derbyshire.
