Bob Emmett studied at Ipswich School of Art and Lowestoft College of Further Education in the 1970’s, then worked as a freelance ceramics designer for various potteries in Hampshire during the 1980’s. After that he was an Art and Design technician and part time lecturer at Portsmouth School of Art (now University of Portsmouth) during the 1990’s.
Bob mostly works in stoneware but is wrestling with porcelain. The translucent quality gives so many more possibilities. Glazes are matt or satin, occasionally using lustres.
Snail Pottery are the husband and wife team of Bob & Andi Emmett. They produce hand thrown and slipcast functional and decorative stoneware ceramics from our workshop in rural Lincolnshire.
