Emma Bossons Moorcroft ceramic artistWho says you have to paint flat to be successful?! Not Emma Bossons. Emma is a ceramic artist and designer at Moorcroft Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent, England and she is in HOT demand!

What I love about Emma’s career is that she is a “self taught” artist with no “formal art training”, who has made her mark (literally) as a successful ceramic artist, and whose work is keenly collected around the world!

Here is a clap-worthy comment from Wikipedia:

Following advice from their bankers, Moorcroft insured Bossons for a widely publicised £1½ million. Moorcroft Chairman Hugh Edwards described Bossons as “a phenomenon who has helped us in a difficult economic environment” and admitted that Bossons’ designs were responsible for hefty 40% of the company’s £6 million annual sales. Some of her work has sold for more than £11,000 in the past.

Emma describes her work as “organic and fluid”. She says:

I would not design anything if I thought that it would not give joy. Morbid or self-serving art does not sit well with me.

Nicely said…and nicely (very nicely) executed. Brava!
