Growing up in Maidenhead, Emma Alington clearly remembers the day, aged 5, when she first made something out of clay, but it wasn't until she began studying Ceramics at A level, under an inspirational tutor, that she decided on a career in the creative arts.
Emma studied Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, graduating in 2013 with a First Class Honours degree. Delighted to discover that there was widespread interest in her work, she took the plunge later that same year and started her own Ceramics Design business.
Most of Emma's work is made on the potter's wheel, using either porcelain or stoneware clays which makes them perfect for use at the table and in the home. She takes inspiration from everywhere, dedicating an entire wall in her studio to an ever changing mood board and is particularly interested in reimagining old pieces to discover how they might be improved both visually and functionally.
Today, Emma continues to develop her own collections whilst undertaking bespoke commissions for a wide range of clients including Presidents and household names and continuing to collaborate on tableware design and small-batch production projects.
