emerging artist: Amanda Sullivan

I began working in clay for the first time about a year ago having never touched it before then.  On a whim I decided to take a Ceramics class at a community college and from the first day I was felt as if I had been doing it my whole life.  It just clicked!  Ever since then I have been working non stop and am finally getting a "studio" set up and just this week ordered my first kiln.  I am extremely excited to see what the future holds for me and am grateful that I have found this life changing medium.

I really love the circle pattern!

Thank you so much. I made the design out of a 6"x6" tile, carved the design I wanted (making sure to be aware of what would be white and red ). I then bisqued the tile and used it as a stamp to stamp the tiles. Once leather hard I put in porcelain slip into the crevices, waited until they were both hard leather hard. Then I scraped down until the design was revealed!
