Emily Cheung

Artist Medium(s): 
  • Ceramics

Emily Cheung is a designer, artist, and maker whose work ranges in medium and technique, but always gravitates around and towards form.

Her journey in pottery and the arts began in childhood, but has truly actualized in the past few years since returning to ceramics and the introduction of wheel throwing at Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Burnaby. Through classes and workshops there, Emily began developing and refining her ceramics forms, working mostly with high fire stoneware and porcelain. Focusing on minimalist, smooth, curved forms, the shapes and surfaces of her work are a canvas for various firing techniques and finishes including gas, raku, wood, soda, and crystalline, highlighting the uniqueness of each firing technique. Now working mostly out of her Squamish-based home studio, her vessel forms continue their exploration in the Sea to Sky community.
