ABOUT EMA FROST
Ema Frost is an Auckland based graphic artist, illustrator and ceramic designer. who is greatly influenced by her travels, most especially by Japan and the Japanese culture.
Her wonderful ceramics are created without eyes. In Japanese culture, a doll called a DARUMA, is given to motivate goal setting and perseverance, yet it has no eyes as it is for the recipient to add them. "You hold the Daruma in one hand and visualize your goal, then apply one eye. Once you have reached your goal, you add the other eye".
Ema's works are of animals and are created in a very fine porcelain with a beautiful gloss finish. They are beautiful crafted in wonderful colours.
Artists statement: "When I was a kid I discovered that you don't choose art, art chooses you". For Ema, art is a form of expression and a way of life.
