EMILY LEES

Born in North Carolina, Emily Lees took up pottery after a 1979 move to Houston, Texas. She returned to her native state in 2004, where she studied at Claymakers studio and attended numerous workshops at the Odyssey in Asheville. In 2007, she had a studio built adjacent to her house. She works predominately in stoneware, with an occasional foray into Raku. Her slab-built work maintains a simplicity which reflects a Japanese or mid-century modern influence, while recurrent images also reference art deco and abstract expressionism. Much of her work evokes landscapes, and most recently, she has explored the urban landscape.
