Living with clay

  • • Ema’s favourite technique is slab building
  • • She trained at the Tetraktis studio, in Crete
  • • In 2010 she set up EA ceramic studio

Ema Ramanskaite is a master craftswoman based on the Greek island of Crete. Originally from Lithuania, the ceramicist started pottery after a few years working in tourism. She found herself inspired by the Cretan cultural tradition, seeing ceramic all around her. Ema established her own studio in 2010, EA Ceramic, after several years of practising and training alongside the master artisan Giannis Vlavogilakis. She mainly draws her inspiration from ancient art; ancient shapes that she likes to reinterpret with a contemporary expression. Ema creates series of useful objects, such as teapots, juicers, vases, seeking to blend functionality and aesthetic beauty.
