Amy Sanders

Claymakers had the great pleasure of hosting Amy Sanders today for a hand building workshop.
I took lots of pictures, but when I was putting them together for this post, I didn't even know where to begin. Amy has many steps in her pieces and her demos are very involved with lots and lots of information. I just didn't know where to start, so I'll just say, if she is ever in your area doing a workshop, TAKE IT! She is fabulous, warm, giving, and very funny. Everyone loved having her at the studio and I think she sold some pieces today in the gallery. You have to see her make these pieces to understand the process, I don't think my explaining things with the photos I took would get anywhere, sorry about that. But, here are some of the pieces she brought for the gallery and gave us demos on. I'll look back through my shots tomorrow when I'm fresh and see if there is anything that I could explain clearly. THANKS Amy for a fantastic workshop!!!!! It was great to see you, good luck with the new baby. Best wishes!

Love Amy's work. I've always wondered when I take a workshop if I should post the artist's process on my blog because I felt I'd be giving information away the artist could make a living from.

hi Linda: It would be so hard for me to post all of the info that Amy gave yesterday, as you see I didn't even know where to start. I like to post enough info to introduce people to an artist they may not be familiar with and encourage people to go to their workshops if I found it to be a valuable workshop. I agree that putting too much out there takes away from the artist,if they wanted to have a detailed blog on their process they would do it themselves I think. Loved your post this morning!

Wonderful work! I saw her work featured in one of the Ceramic magazines and loved it then. Everyone shares such a positive and genuine loving sentiment about her. Lucky you to have taken the inspiring workshop!
