A graduate of Sheridan College, Emma Bickers explores intimate connections through visual storytelling on earthenware figurative vessels. Bickers’ work depicts the vulnerable theme of Sapphic identity, capturing tender emotions and loving narratives on the surfaces of her works. Originally planning to be an illustrator, she found interest in ceramics after taking an introductory course. She now combines the two to create colourful illustrations that decorate the surface of large organic vessels.
Bickers became an Artist-in-Residence at Harbourfront Centre in 2023.
