Emil Berild

The flame-decorated and varied surfaces of Emil’s ceramics are created using the ancient technique of smoke firing, yet his pieces have an entirely contemporary look and feel. Emil trained in the USA and draws his inspiration from street art and American pop art. On the boundary between art and practical pottery, he creates objects that confound and surprise. In his work, skilled craftsmanship and precision combine with the random processes that are part and parcel of creativity in ceramics.
