Arlington Community Center (20 Academy Street)

Amy has been working at her craft since the 1970s. She received an M.A. in Ceramics from City College in New York, ran a pottery gallery and school in Brooklyn for several years and traveled to Japan where she learned about Japanese wood firing techniques. Amy returned to the U.S., built a wood fired kiln and concentrated on making Japanese tea ware. She has had several one-person shows in New York City. In the 1980s family life eclipsed her ceramic work until doing therapeutic work in clay with people with disabilities brought her back to pottery.

Centering a piece of clay is a metaphor for an approach to one's whole life, an activity of inner stillness and attention that yields beauty. These pieces are created out of this intention and with this there is also the hope that they can impart to those who receive them moments of stillness and peace.

Amy's work continues to be strongly influenced by traditional Japanese pottery and she now works at home in Medford, MA. where she has her studio and shows her work. She can be reached at 781-646-1873.
