Emily Dore came to clay by way of a night-time pottery class while on maternity leave. She sat down at the wheel, got her hands dirty, and has been passionate about ceramics ever since.
Emily is a studio potter with a strong foundation in wheel-thrown functional ware. Emily studied throwing under Audrey Killoran and pursued ceramics and glaze making under the mentorship of Olaf de Winter at the Westmount Visual Arts Centre’s School of Art in Montreal. Since moving to Ottawa in 2013, Emily has refined her craft working in her home studio and as an open studio member at Loam, where her work is sold.
A researcher and story consultant for documentary film and television, Emily holds an honours BA in English and Creative Writing from Concordia University.
