Emily Squires Levine has become known for her openwork polymer vessels which appear airy and delicate yet are strong and well-engineered. She picked up the medium in 1996 but abandoned the hard-to-condition clays after a couple years of trying. When she saw the bowls of Karin Noyes in 2004, she was ready to give it another go and found the new formulations of polymer much easier to handle. After 30 years in the financial industry, Emily retired to her studio.
Hear how Emily thought of herself as a person who could follow patterns — never an artist. She's evolved into her creative side and argues that she could not have done it otherwise.
