Amy Irish is a full time NC studio potter and ceramics instructor. She makes functional and decorative work out of her home studio in Hillsborough, NC. She uses wheel thrown pottery and a complex process of layered slip and underglazes to create illustrative surfaces. Amy is inspired by the little things in the world around her. Her children, the garden, and preparing food for her family are all sources of joy that she hopes to share and connect with the viewer through clay.
