Emma is a Scottish Jeweller, designer and maker, based in Glasgow. She graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 2019.
Emma utilises a playful and tactile approach to making and thinking and is inspired by a playful point of view. She draws inspiration from both playground frames and children’s ‘squishy’ play toys, such as balloons, that morph form when a tactile pressure is applied to them. Through combining these playful pressure forms and frames, she creates visually playful and tactile work.
