About Us


     Hello friends! My name is Emily, and mud is what I love most. I've been a potter of sorts since I was eleven years old when my mother signed me up for a class in hand-building and sculpture. I fell in love the moment I squished a bit of clay between my fingers. In the last twelve years since that first class, my style has changed considerably from fun, childhood art projects to functional wares for the home. 


     I have a home studio in my small town of Maryville, TN. I was born and raised in Maryville, and take joy in being able to provide something unique to my community.

     I have a love for bright colors and anything and everything botanical. My first line of work, which is by far the most popular, consists of a bright streak of color with an etching of a flower. I have several other lines of work, of which you will be able to find in my catalog!


     I want to bring a smile to someone's face when they're drinking their morning coffee out of their signature Em.Burge Pottery mug. At the end of the day, my goal is to provide functional artwork for the home with a story behind it. 


     If you want to follow along on my journey of making functional art for the home, you can find me on:
