''While living in Japan, I had the opportunity to observe many Japanese potters at work. Watching them sparked my interest for the work and for the process of turning a lump of mud into a useful vessel.''
Emily Pearlman produces all of her ceramics out of her studio in New York. Her pieces are thrown on the wheel, hand built, slip cast, or a combination of all three. In recent years, she has also explored other techniques to unlock the potential she finds inherent in clay that is pushed, pulled, thrown, coiled, rolled, and stretched.
Once a piece is formed, but while the clay is still damp, Pearlman adds decoration, texture, and finishing touches. Lead-free glazes are hand-mixed from dry chemicals. The final step is firing. Each piece is fired at more than 2280 degrees, a temperature that makes the surface highly chip-resistant and perfect for dinnerware.
