Emma Rodgers - New Work - In the Window

We are delighted to reopen with new ceramic work by Emma Rodgers In the Window and the gallery which Emma has been making during the lockdown. 

This figurative series tells some of the story of Helen of Troy in Greek mythology was said to have been the most beautiful mortal woman in the world and is credited with causing the Trojan War. 


The series so far sees her sailing through the waves in her paper porcelain boat and striding onto the shore from a boar laden sea. Each piece depicted with coral, shells and waves, the face that launched a thousand ships in the words of Christopher Marlowe. Emma used her eldest daughter as the model for Helen. 

Please contact us for further information, availability of pieces and prices.
