Emma Smith firing her woodkiln

I am a list maker:
analytical and
a cautious explorer.

I make objects that gather communities.
They are made for daily life.
These objects are ordinary and unassuming.
They are simple, they are useful.
They are made to be experienced.

They tell stories of childhood, tender thoughts of skinned knees and broken hearts.
They are memories of growth and change, missives of loss.
They are the history of a flame.
They are stories of life.

You can find my studio in the quaint town of Jerseyville ON,
where my partner and I have opened a retail shop that carries handmade home goods from makers across the country.
