About The Artwork

This is a stoneware clay swimming pool sculpture, with an iron oxide wash and turquoise melted glass for the water. My friend is an audacious activist and yet here she is, sitting on the side of her swimming pool being her usual cool self (in reality, her pool is much bigger than this). I was swimming by when she caught my eye – with her black cossie, black glasses and black trimmed sunhat. I got out to take a quick snap, because I thought I might paint her one day. However, sometime later, during a ceramic class, the scene unexpectedly started to take shape – it had stayed in my mind! This is one of the last pieces I completed before lockdown. I can’t wait to get back making sculptures again, because there’s still loads of room to expand on this idea, to make it into a series. The water is made from the glass of a smashed and melted Bombay Sapphire gin bottle.

Emma is a London born and educated artist, digital video maker and designer – her artwork straddles stoneware sculpture, cyanotype printing, painting (watercolour, oil and acrylic), illustration, photography, fabric art, animation and vector design. Emma's art is highly personal, her subjects include her friends (animal as well as human), places she’s visited, experiences and things that capture her imagination. Her artwork is uncontrived and free from trying to be anything other than what it is. "At the core of Emma Plunkett's work is the female. Not feminine or politicised. Whether it be a disappearing view of trees into the Spanish horizon, a slithering viscous ceramic or a candid nude. It is always individual and genuine. This we must celebrate”. Gareth Lister - Artist & Curator
