Hello, I’m Emma the owner and creator of Emma Cranston Pottery. 

I have never been one to follow the traditional, linear path of life. Since I was a child, I have always been very tenacious, creative, and drawn to the arts. I knew from very early on it was my true nature to create. I started to dabble with ceramics in high school. At the time, I had very little interest in pottery and only signed up because a friend had talked me into joining with her. To my surprise, I ended up loving it. It was a few years after highschool when I found my love for pottery again. It was a creative outlet I found to be so much more freeing and grounding than the other artistic mediums I was used to. 

While I am primarily self taught, I have had the privilege of learning from potters on the Sunshine Coast, Tuscany, and of course, my home province Alberta. I am always looking for ways to expand my skills and learn new things.

Creating pottery that is beautiful, affordable, and truly functional is very important to me. Knowing my wares are loved and used everyday in people's homes fills me with so much joy. My pieces are all thoughtfully designed and handmade by me. I play a part in every step, from preparing the clay to mixing my glazes from scratch.
