Emily Hamann of Ignem Terrae Ceramics is an artist and designer based in Sydney, Australia. Hamann obtained a Bachelor of Design at the renowned fashion college RMIT in Melbourne.
After more than a decade designing for the fashion industry Hamann switched disciplines; replacing the soft and often unpredictable medium of fabric with a more malleable, grounding material that is clay.
Hamann’s understanding of the interrelationship between materials and the human form has underpinned her exploration of sculptural forms; the body is absent, yet always implied.
Modern Times respectfully acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we gather, share and celebrate local creative practice. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first people of Australia. They have never ceded sovereignty, and remain strong in their enduring connection to land and culture.
