Amy Sabrina's Profile

About

My home is Sweetgrass Farm, in rural east central Minnesota. Here I have planted thousands of native trees. I forage for the abundant wild food. I sleep on the Land. Daily, I walk the trails through woods, prairie, swamp, and pasture with my two dogs, marveling at the Beauty and the Strange. All this inspires the work I create.

As a child growing up in the suburbs, I found solace and magic in a small wooded area near my suburban home. I created puzzle books for my friends - tiny paper creations with connect the dot, hangman, riddles, and other visual mystery games. I gravitated towards crafts, in part because my older sister was considered the artist of the family.

I created puzzle books for my friends - tiny paper creations with connect the dot, hangman, riddles, and other visual mystery games. I gravitated towards crafts, in part because my older sister was considered the artist of the family.

I have delighted in working with clay and selling what I make since high school. Quilt making is a passion, though lately, it is on hold. You might notice its influence in my ceramic work. I love to paint and do so on most everything I make.

Some of the earthenware pots on this site are majolica - colorful painted images that softly fuse with the glaze. I create other work that has more depth and more time in its creation. This includes what is listed under Black and White Ware. These are painted with several layers of colorants, detailed with a needle tool, and then glazed.

The bottoms and backs and undersides of what I create are often as rich in imagery and content as the topside.

My ceramic pieces can be found in museums and public and private collections throughout the world. Until I dropped my last name in 1987, my work was signed 'Amy Myers'. For many years I showed and sold my ceramic work primarily through art galleries. An area of specialty for me is creating legacy work - that which honors or memorializes a particular individual.
