Emmeline Butler

Through her wheel-thrown ceramic work Emmeline explores some of the textures found through the Yorkshire Dales landscape that surrounds her. Her love of nature, the countryside and the beauty of its many textures has a great influence on her work. Cracked limestone pavements, tree bark, dry exposed peat, are reflected in the surface patterns of her ceramics. She uses a finely grogged clay which, although can be a bit rough to work with, gives a wonderful feel to the finished piece, and compliments the textures created on the outside
