About the Artist/Exhibition

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 is on display in Gallery Thirteen at the Williamson until the beginning of June.

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.

We are hoping that Emilie will be with us to speak about her work on the 19th of May, details will follow once we have confirmation.
