About

Sculptural, Functional and Wearable Porcelain Pieces, Handmade in Maine

My name is Emily Diaz Norton and I live in Portland, Maine where I graduated from Maine College of Art in 2007 with a BFA in Ceramics. Since graduating, I have continued making items and participating in shows and sales as much as I can, while still performing the duties of a full time job. My current studio space is located in Gorham, ME in the industrial park, working alongside my boyfriend Nicholas Zalisk who makes and designs studio and commercial furniture. We occasionally collaborate on pieces and also work for each other when one needs an extra set of hands!

I primarily consider myself a sculptor but I really enjoy designing functional home decor, kitchen items and jewelry. Things that I make are all made and designed by me, in my own studio. I use a combination of hand building, slip casting, moldmaking and throwing techniques to create my work. Materials I use are a combination of purchased and personally developed casting slip, clay and glazes. I work mostly with mid-range porcelain clay bodies because I love the crisp color and the ability it has to retain tiny details.

A bit about me: I was adopted from Colombia as an infant, grew up in the Southern Maine countryside and have since remained in Maine after college. I have always appreciated the life I grew up having and this is heavily reflected in what I create. My work is a combination of my memories, appreciation for the little things and interest in historical ceramics-especially miniatures and other items celebrating the "everyday." I incorporate designs and images I am inspired by, into pieces that are concise and simply representative of what I love and want to share with others.

I am continually grateful and thankful for all of the support from family, friends and complete strangers who have supported me and what I create. I am forever appreciative for the kind words from all of you. I hope you enjoy browsing my shop and please do not hesitate to contact me with comments and questions!
