Amy is a gifted teacher and an accomplished potter who pours herself into her work. I met Amy back in 2002 when she was my pottery teacher at the Lancaster Art Museum. I loved her class so much I took it about ten times in row and set up my own studio at home complete with a wheel, slab roller and kiln. Through those classes I watched her work with all age groups and ability levels. She individualizes her classes to each student, meets you where you are, and can take you where you want to go. A class from her would be a great gift for anyone, even yourself - and great fun to do with a group of friends!
She teaches classes at her studio in Lititz, PA, at The Lancaster Creative Factory, and can teach hand building almost anywhere!
A bonus to taking classes at her studio is that Walter provides moral support free of charge!
Amy makes handmade functional pottery on a kick wheel. Using a kick wheel is an art in itself - Amy powers it by, you guessed it, kicking a wheel. There is no electric involved ! She uses a stoneware clay to make all her pieces oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. Her pottery is functional art. (Notice her signature mark in each of the bowls she just threw!) I enjoy many of her pieces in my home (I snatched up the compost bunny below as soon as she posted it!).

Amy works from her heart and makes what she loves. Don't you want her to direct her talents to custom work for you? She sells her work from her studio, her website, or the Purple Robin in Lititz.
