STUDIO YOKI

Studio Yōki is a ceramic studio based in Glasgow, run by potter Emma Rogers. 

Combining Emma’s love for both pottery and plants, Studio Yōki specialises in creating handcrafted ceramic planters and vases, alongside a selection of homewares. Using a variety of hand building techniques, Emma creates beautifully organic ceramic products. The nature of Emma’s style of working and the techniques she uses means each product she creates is unique. Emma is influenced by her background as a painter and visual artist. She is drawn to clay’s similarities to paint- its tactile nature, coupled with its malleability as a 3D medium. 

Emma strives to create a therapeutic process in her practice. When hand building, there is rhythm with every movement Emma makes, every manipulation of the clay. There is gentle repetition, yet every pot is one of a kind. 

This ability to repeat the same process over and over yet never arrive at the exact same finished product twice, is what has always intrigued Emma, and keeps her coming back to her studio every week. 

‘Yōki’ meaning vessel in Japanese, is a nod to Emma’s background in visual art when she first used Japanese words to title her works.
