About

Hello! My name is Emily and I am the artist behind Emily Hett Art! I create playful and vibrant artworks inspired by nature across a range of media including ceramics, painting and public sculpture. My aim is to make uplifting artworks which spark a moment of joy in the viewer; from festivals to within the private setting of your home!

The Journey

After changing from one degree in colouring (geography) to another, I decided to pursue my passion for art and studied a 4 year Fine Art course at Loughborough University!

After graduating and completing a one year fellowship in partnership with Loughborough University and the Artists Benevolent Fund, I set about creating my cosy home studio (aka glamped up shed full of things that inspire me). With funding from the Arts Council at the start of Covid, I managed to get all the equipment to make and fire ceramics at home and I have been stuck in mud ever since!  

A typical day in the studio

My days are spent either in my studio designing and creating whilst listening to an outrageous amount of podcasts and belting out musicals! OR I will be on-site working on exciting projects with a little less singing.

In the small about of time I am not creating or thinking about creating, I love gardening, walking, the sunshine and spending time in Manchester with the family, all which can be improved with a lovely cup of tea!

Where you can find me over the next few months!
