Meet the Artisan
Growing up amongst the redwoods of Northern California, at an early age Amy developed a deep appreciation for raw, natural materials which is still reflected in her work today. She had always been a painter, but it was after her children were grown when she sat down at a potter’s wheel, that she experienced her profound and instantaneous connection with clay.
Her organic shapes and smooth marriages of clay and linen twine are tantamount to nature – and at once both modern and primitive. They are tranquil, calming, and pensive. This piece was imagined and then shaped and fired with those thoughts in mind as the artist created this work in Encino, California
