Emma Louise Wilson

About Emma Louise Wilson

Emma Wilson is an Aberdeen-based maker specialising in silver and enamel. A graduate of Gray’s School of Art, Emma launched her first collection in 2019 and has exhibited widely since, including at Collect Art Fair. Emma draws inspiration from the dynamic seascape around Aberdeen, capturing the essence of stormy skies and the rich colours and textures found along the coastline. The enamel is informed by Emma’s abstract watercolours, echoing the unpredictable but beautiful outcomes of the water and paint in the opaque and transparent glass, creating fragments of the seascape as miniature works of art framed in silver.

Maker Enquiry Form

Using the technique of hand raising, Emma makes fine silver bowls with enamelled decoration on the inner surface. She also produces a range of statement brooches in the same way, and rings in silver and enamel that have been carved in wax and cast in Britannia silver.

The collections represent memories of being by the sea, a glimpsed moment beautifully preserved within the enamel. Each piece of jewellery is a wearable memory capturing the atmosphere of the coast, while the silver bowls emulate the organic shapes of pebbles found along the shoreline, evoking a tactile connection to the coastal landscape.
