I carve narratives into the surface of my functional pottery pieces through the technique called sgraffito. I use whimsical characters and illustrations as my imagery. I’ve slowly begun working in sculptural elements to my functional ceramics, giving more personality to each piece. I’m inspired by the climax of a story, and the reactions that this brings. The gestures of each character are thoughtful, and tell each of their moods in the narrative. When I create a conversation, no matter what that conversation holds, I feel I have created a successful piece of art.

Guest, Amy Smith

Originally from Ohio, I attended Ohio University for my undergrad in Athens, OH and after a pottery apprenticeship in Massachusetts, earned my MFA in Ceramics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I went on to teach and was very involved in the local arts community. I managed Lincoln Clay Studio for six years and co-founded the Lincoln Clay Tour with Gail Kendall, Sharon Ohmberger, and Su Harvey. In 2016 I received a teaching award from the university and in 2017, I was a recipient of the Mayor’s Arts Awards.
