About

Ceramics Meets Print

Amanda M Barr received a BA and MA in Spanish Literature before choosing to pursue a career in ceramics. She just finished a post-baccalaureate in Ceramics at University of Colorado Boulder, and is currently a resident artist at Pottery Northwest in Seattle, Washington. Her work is developed from a background in printmaking, and is an expression of her use of literature and television as vehicles for escaping reality.

Artist Statement

My ceramic work is an exploration of color, graphic imagery and text on porcelain. I enjoy the intimacy of using functional objects as narrative vehicles for my inner monologue. These objects then become part of the user’s narrative, becoming part of their daily life through the ritual of use and by decorating their living spaces. Each piece is a reflection of myself, and in choosing to accept it into their life, it also reflects the user.

I am often inspired by my background in literature, thematically as well as being a source for much of my text and my love of vintage illustrations. Through books one can travel through time, to faraway lands… anywhere the imagination can create. My work is an extension of my love of reading; it is about expression and escapism, imagination and history. I want to make work that will capture the imagination and create a dialogue with the viewer, force them to think and dream and make their own journeys.
