Join Emina at Noor Ceramics Studio as she demonstrates a wheel throwing session. During the session she will create bud vases – small functional pieces that can be used every day.
Emina is a Bosnian ceramicist living and working in Vancouver. With a focus on creating one of a kind pieces that blur the line between function and art; utilitarian in nature but have the ability to stand alone as a sculpture or a decorative piece. With a background in Communications Design, Emina brings a unique perspective to her work, incorporating design principles and drawing inspiration from architecture and clean lines, she is committed to exploring form and function while merging aesthetics with utility. Inspired by nature and the natural environment, her shapes take an organic form that feel harmonious with its surroundings, and establish a connection between the clay and it’s environment. She spends time feeling the clay bodies to see how far they can be pushed. The result are often warped pieces that challenge traditional notions of pottery. Emina is currently working on a dinnerware collection and playing with the idea of light fixtures.
