Émilie Coquil is a french ceramic artist based in Montreal who works with porcelain and digital photography. After a master's degree from the Higher School of Graphic Arts in Paris and a career in graphic design she moved to Canada and studied ceramics and psychology. In her practice she reaffirms the necessity for a tactile and poetic experience of seeing. Her work has been shown at Montreal Museum of Fine Art and various events in Canada, England and France. She won the Ceramics Excellence Award at TOAF 60 last year.

"I use lithography on raw clay. It gives me the freedom for manual interventions at the printing stage. The porcelain is glazed and high fired twice, which forever merges the image with a layer of glass. In contrast, my favorite subject, called Ukiyo in the Buddhist tradition, is the evanescent, changing and ephemeral aspect of life."
