Emily Lewis is a Nova Scotian jewellery artist based in Quebec City. She is the owner of Studio METHOD(E) and Galerie Lewis, a contemporary jewellery studio and contemporary craft gallery respectively. She is dedicated to the development of community and support networks in the Quebec City region, provincially and nationally. She works hard to create accessible spaces for work, diffusion and reflection.
In her own jewellery work she is interested by the impact of jewellery and craft historically. She works with motifs from Berlin Iron Work jewellery, William Morris wallpapers and textiles and Victorian jewellery. The political and cultural importance of craft and jewellery work in these eras feels particularly pertinent today. She uses simplification and repetition to create her pieces, graphic lines and bold colours are used in non-noble materials to create production pieces as well as one of a kind works.
