received a BFA in Ceramics from Alfred University in 1990. She continued her education with an MFA in Sculpture from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale.
Amy moved to Las Vegas, NV in 1995 and worked as a welder for 6 years. She started building Pottery West in the fall of 2001.
In April of 2010 Amy made a commitment to create her work in Coleman Porcelain for it’s throwing and incising capabilities. Celadon glaze and micro-bubble glaze emphasize the incised work she carves into her forms.
Touching (and being able to feel) is what moves me to work in porcelain. My sense of form has evolved since I began throwing porcelain in 2005. Creating form is a 3 dimensional canvas. I see forms within forms as I alter, sculpt, draw, and incise. I pay close attention to light and shadow to bring out incredibly fluid forms.
In workshop presentations
Amy demonstrates throwing, altering and incising on greenware porcelain. Amy works with porcelain at every stage of greenware and bisque to create translucent porcelain ware.
Amy also teaches you how to apply celadon glaze in a way that accentuates the intricate details of your work in translucent porcelain. Learn which porcelain and celadon are completely compatible.
While creating forms and laying out designs Amy is influenced by her early studies in figure drawing and graphic design. Her style is influenced by having spent time studying dance, music and theater.
Amy studied ceramics with Jean Parsons (Interlochen Arts Academy 1985), Val Cushing, and Tom and Elaine Coleman.
Thank you to Tom and Elaine for their advice and support with Pottery West and the development of her work in porcelain.
