Featured Student Artist: Emi Kopke


Emi’s ceramic “Leaf Water Fountain” is the only ceramic Top Ten Winner chosen in her age division for the Spring 2012 national art contest.

Emi Kopke was an eighth grader at Lake Zurich Middle School North Campus when she created this piece.  Emi is now a sophomore at Lake Zurich High School and is seriously pursuing art and ceramics.

Emi was inspired to make this piece through observation of water movement and the purity of nature. “In my opinion, nature is the most pure element we have; without human interference nature is already genuine. Although the beauty of nature cannot be recreated, I endeavored to resemble it’s elegance by using white.” Emi explains.

Emi’s goals for the future consist of improving her artistic talent. She also aspires to have her more recent work published and also her writing.
