Ceramic Artist Bio
Émilie Coquil is a french ceramic artist based in Montreal. She works with porcelain and digital photography to create original ceramic wall art. Her focus is on the old printing process of lithography that she adapted for clay.
She received a master degree from the Higher School of Graphic Arts and Industries in Paris. After a career in graphic design she moved to Canada to study ceramics and psychology.
In her practice she reaffirms the necessity for a tactile and poetic experience of viewing. Her favorite subject is called ukiyo* in the Buddhist tradition: the evanescent, changing and ephemeral aspect of life.
Her work has been shown at Montreal Museum of Fine Art, and various events in Canada, England and France.
She received the prize of Excellence in ceramics from Toronto Outdoor Art Fair 60th in 2021.
