Liz Emtage - Ceramic Artist

Liz Emtage has been working with porcelain clay for over 20 years, graduationg from Bath College in 1996.

Liz is inspired by the beauty of the natural world - she uses foraged materials to create textures in her lighting and tile pieces. She enjoys working with clients on commissions for their homes and is happy to take on new projects.

This studio was opened in 2016 when Liz moved with her family to the beautiful seaside town of St Leonards on sea.

  • "I’ve liked Liz’s work from the moment I was introduced to it and didn’t need much of an excuse to buy the first piece, a large lamp with the traces of rose stems and flower heads impressed into the body. It has pride of place in the family room." David Hughes

  • "It was the distinctiveness and elegant delicacy that first attracted us to Liz’s work, now almost twenty years ago. Liz is easy-going, listens and reflects and is happy to iterate on ideas, maintaining a dry sense of humour, until we are all satisfied with the concept and its means of execution." Stephen and Lorna

  • "Your work continues to give us pleasure and pride in having such a great piece in our house. It sits at the top of our stairs on a huge picture window overlooking the garden - in which we still have Agapanthus. We see it as a future heirloom for our children." Ian and Denise
