A pottery enthusiast, Amanda has been practicing pottery for half a decade and is tutored by Alvin. Hery background is in graphic design and marketing, where she developed an eye for pattern and decoration. In her ceramics she combines her love for ornamentation and her fascination with handcrafted ceramics.
As a resident at 7879 Gallery and Clayworks, she developed her own designs into a new body of work, exploring the relationship between the cultures, and how they continue to connect and influence each other through the ceramic arts.
