About the Artist!
Amanda Proctor has been working with clay since her high school ceramics class in 2006. She quickly fell in love with the tactile nature of the medium and learned the basics from her teacher Cathy Amos. After graduating in 2009, Amanda continued to study fine arts at the University of Georgia where she received a BFA with a ceramics emphasis in 2013. Studying under artists Ted Saupe and Sunkoo Yuh allowed Amanda to learn how versatile clay can be as an artform. She was able to make traditional, functional pottery forms while also using clay to build large, organic sculptures. Today, Amanda teaches handbuilding and wheel-throwing pottery classes both at OCAF in Watkinsville and Good Dirt Clay Studio in Athens, GA. She sells her pottery at artists markets, pottery sales, online and still creates her abstract sculptures at her studio in Athens.
