Profile

Amber Schnitzius, Ceramic artist

Hand-built and wheel thrown ceramic artist
From a very young age, I remember always having a fascination with clay, especially with the potter's wheel. In high school, I took my first ceramics class and was instantly hooked. It was intimidating trying to figure out what type of ceramic art I wanted to focus on since there are infinite possibilities when it comes to what you can create with clay. It turns out that my passion is making functional pieces of pottery. I think there is magic in being able to create something out of earth with your hands that ends up in your kitchen cabinet and that is durable enough to last through years of use.
