Amy throws porcelain forms that reference the quiet landscape of her youth and as a runner moving within that landscape is equally important to the content of her pots. Often she will forgo fully centering the clay on the wheel to achieve a naturally undulating rim.
Smith first touched clay at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, where she obtained a BFA. She continued in her ceramic education as an apprentice for Kaleidoscope Pottery in Easthampton, Massachusetts and went on to earn her Master's degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
She exhibits her vessels nationally including: CLAYAKAR - Yunomi Invitational, The Clay Studio - Pottery by Design, and Belger Crane Yard Studios - Digital Debut.
