Emma graduated from Lincoln University with a BA (hons) in Contemporary Decorative Crafts, before opening the Stopped Clock studio in her home county of Nottinghamshire in 2018.

Creating a range of jewellery and small gift items, Emma is inspired by vibrant colour and contemporary straight lines. By adopting various cold-working techniques and multiple kiln firings, Emma achieves a highly polished finish to her work which invites the light to transcend through making the colours glow more vividly.

Emma sells her glass work online and via markets and galleries. Studio workshops are available to book, whilst external venues can also be accommodated for.


A purpose-built log cabin sits nestled underneath the trees at the bottom of Emma’s garden in Balderton, near Newark. Being based at home provides Emma with the ultimate flexibility to balance work and family life. The studio is fairly accessible and can accommodate workshops of up to four people.

Open Studio: 29-30 May (BH), 10 to 5

Emma’s work is defined by geometric shapes with highly polished edges. Always experimenting with new colour combinations and pattern, her work is bold and fresh. The jewellery line now includes a sterling silver collection, whilst the current interior range features ring dishes, soap dishes, coasters and tealight holders.
