Born and raised in Tokyo where she graduated in philosophy and history, Ema Girardot worked several years for a french-japanese dictionnary and as an interpret, before turning to ceramics. Since her childhood, Ema has always been surrounded by old family ustensils and the guinomis (sake cups) collection of her father. This environment and her sensibility to handcrafted objects inspired her to create objects by herself. For the past 15 years, Ema Girardot has been working with clay, especially grog clay, which she mounts using the mini coiling technique. She leaves the clay coils visible on the outside to show the dialogue with the clay and how the material expresses itself during the building process.
