Emily Lawlor

Emily Lawlor graduated from the Public Art and Design degree at Chelsea Art College in 1994 with a first class BA Hons. Emily Lawlor designs and creates beautiful, unique mosaic wall panels and mosaics.

When the family china, inherited from Emily’s great-great grandmother, crashed to the ground several Christmases ago, the first mosaic was born. Since then Emily has been fusing pattern, colour and words into contemporary artworks with a vintage feel.

Tea drinking and its ceremony has been celebrated by Irish born Emily Lawlor all her life; which is why it forms the focus of her mosaics. As Emily says: “Coming from an Irish family, I have developed a love of words and of tea drinking and its ceremony. Cups of tea punctuate the days of our lives. In my artworks, I wanted to celebrate the ritual of tea drinking and its universal appeal around the world.”
