Darren Emenau

Darren Emenau is a potter and ceramic artist whose process focuses on the intersection of science and art. A graduate of New Brunswick College of Craft and Design with honours in fine craft, Emenau’s sculptural works presents a dialogue between the unique Acadian coastline of New Brunswickand the landscape of this area which he calls home. His choice of materials have included locally sourced clays, potash, silica, shale and granite, which aim to reflect the environmental textures from where they are collected.


The surfaces in Emenau’s work come to life through his constant development and exploration of non-traditional techniques and push the traditional boundaries of ceramic sculpture. Moss, lichen, bark, bacteria, fungi and the rugged shoreline provide Emenau with an infinite multitude of shapes, colours and textures to draw from in his pieces.

Emenau has exhibited extensively, both nationally and internationally including in The Craft Bienalle in South Korea. His work can be found in private and public collections in Fredericton, NB, CA; Saint John, NB, CA; London, ON, CA; Maine, USA; Florida, USA and Turkey. His work continues to be recognized through ongoing awards and grants.
