Emma Swales Ceramics

Perfectly imperfect handmade pottery

Handmade pottery and ceramics from my studio workshop in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, UK. I use a variety of techniques to create my work, including throwing clay on the pottery wheel and hand-building pottery forms. I am not a production potter, preferring to make limited editions or one-off pieces. This means no two items are the same, even if the glaze combinations or finishing techniques are similar. You can be certain you are buying a truly one-off handmade pottery piece with its own character. I call it perfectly imperfect’. I also take on commissions where time allows and the pottery design fits my style.

You’ll find in my ceramics collections fun pieces that play with texture and colour to create functional ware, as well as decorative designs.
