Summer Harvest


Ceramic Sculpture
by Emil Yanos

16″H, 16″W, 6.25″D

Summer Harvest is inspired by the rolling hills of Sonoma County. California takes on a dry, brittle appearance due to many years of drought. I have created a terrain where plants bloom from the spring rains and are immediately suspended by the hot, dry air. Textural elements are attached, impressed or carved into the slab construction. Engobes and under glazes increase the tactile quality of the piece.


Ceramic Sculptor Emil Yanos has been working with clay since 1993. Professionally trained in Floral and Graphic Design, his ceramic work weaves together the best aspects of both disciplines. Through hands-on experimentation, he has found that working with clay provides an excellent medium to explore his love of color and texture.

The overall feel of his work is organic and inspired of the earth. Elemental forms give his work primitive yet refined sensibilities. Emil’s goal in all of his creative endeavors is to communicate meaning, extending beyond the visual form to encourage an emotional response from his audience.
