    MISS EMILY LEIST
    A CLEVER ARTIST
    BRASS AND COPPER REPOUSSE WORK.
    On the Heights of Coogee, overlooking Bishopscourt, with an incomparable view of wooded valley, of retiring Little Coogee, nestling at the foot of the sandy hills, and the gleaming waters of the Pacific ceaselessly washing its shores, I found Miss Emily Leist, Sydney's well-known brass and copper repousse artist.
    She was hard at work in her pretty verandah studio and workshop, with its screen of trellised vines and luxurious ferns, half revealing a little courtyard ; its borders ablaze with brilliant hued flowers and inviting rockery corners, making an excellent background for the well-kept centre piece of grass.
    Surrounded by her implements of trade, Miss Leist made a pleasant picture — active, alert, intensely interested in her work, and full of eagerness to instil the same interest in those who sought her, quickly helping them to realise the charm of this most difficult of all branches of applied art.
    Born in Sydney, she spent most of her childhood in Waverley, of English parentage, she has inherited her artistic gifts from her mother, a member of a family whose sons were recognised as very clever black and white artists
    Their water-colors also became well known in London. Unable to develop her own artistic talents, through the many calls of a large family, she took care to encourage the efforts of her children, and give them every opportunity to develop theirs. Intended for a musical career. Miss Leist studied under the late Goring Thomas with satisfactory results. Joining Mr. S. Atkins' first class at the Technical College for repousse work, she quickly gave evidence of ability, devoting all her spare time to practising at home and experimenting on new ideas. She won the scholarship and special prize for her work, and certificates for modelling at the Technical College ; indeed, her skill in modelling is so pronounced that should Miss Leist ever forsake her repousse work and concentrate on this branch of art, her models, I believe, would quickly become famous. An indefatigable worker, Miss Leist prepares all her own designs, taking her inspirations from native flora, most of which grows in her own garden. To see her take a plain piece of sheet copper or brass, and rapidly fashion it into a plaque, tray, crumb-scoop, ash-tray, or spin it into a perfect bowl, ready for its decoration of wattle-bean, bush fuchsia, lillipillies, sheoak, gum leaves, or any of the hundred and one beautiful designs she has invented, is AN INSPIRATION TO THE ART STUDENT.
    Hammering, hammering on the sand bag, annealing the article by fire, beating it on the steel anvil, into perfect shape, or in its setting of pitch, pricking out the design always with the copper or brass, kept at white heat by means of a gas jet, planishing the leaves and working to a finish, using dozens of different mallets and punches, one can't say the work is exactly easy.
    'But It is very interesting,' said Miss Leist, 'and I love it. Just look what one can create.' And here she paused to show me a handsome alms-dish, a memorial to her mother, which now beautifies the Anglican Church at Leura. Then she brought a solid brass cigar-box, adorned with a wonderful spray of wattle, a nut-bowl and ladle, made out of copper, and a set of plates to match, with lillipilli berries and leaves, and a quaint three-cornered ash-tray, same as chosen by 'Harold Parker' as an example of perfect work, having, by special request, a design of gum leaves and king beetles. For this he presented Miss Leist with a much-prized copy of his 'Ariadne,' which had won the Chantry bequest of £1000. But she is much more, anxious to show you the work of her brother, Fred Leist, known in London as the 'Phil May' of Australia, and rapidly making his mark in that centre of art as a portrait painter ; her sister Florence's fine pottery work, and the many beautiful pictures from the brush of Longstaff, Watkins, Fitzgerald, and Sid Long, that decorate her home.Miss Leist has met with many difficulties. It has been almost impossible to get the necessary tools. The metal, which is mostly made in Belgium, from Australian ore, is often faulty, causing double work, and special requirements were unprocurable. Yet all this seemed the best schooling for developing her inventive
    ability and initiative qualities. Her work has been thrice purchased for the National Gallery. It has also received a place of honor at the Technological Museum, taken .first prizes at various shows, ami been sent all over the Commonwealth, quantities of it being sold in Brisbane yearly. Much of it has also been given by this active, versatile woman to enrich the funds of the Red Cross.
