Amberlea McNaught

Showing in Makers Fair
I am an emerging ceramicist based in Sheffield. I travel the world in search of skilled artisan, studying traditional arts from master craftsmen in India and Africa. I have honed my techniques on the wheel to find a personal communicative visual language that transcends cultural and historical barriers of identity and origin.

My most recent body of work consists of deeply carved black vessels. These pieces are a continuing development of translating carved plaster surfaces in to sharp geometric ceramic forms. Flowing freely between the two mediums, i find ways to incorporate the dying art of Moroccan architectural plaster carvings (Stucco) in to small tactile vessels. Inspired by walls and floors, I m on a journey to carve my own Alhambra.
