Emma’s sculpture appeals to the senses; her work explores human experience: from how we feel, to how we move, to how we deal with life and the choices we make.

Barristers in wire

Just completed a commission to make 4′ high wire sculptures of barristers disputing.

The sculptures were commissioned for a hotel bar which is an old court house in York, called Judge’s Lodging.

The project was a huge challenge as not only was it a new way of working for me, but I only had 20days to design and build the piece!

I think of these wire sculptures as 3D drawings and find it amazing how you can say so much with so few lines. I did however need to add more than I wished to make it more stable and less fragile- especially as it’s located in a bar.


Here is a link to a very home made video of these sculptures, which does give you bit more of a feel for the 3d wire work.  https://youtu.be/z5zgYtHbYRk
