I love my new travel cup! I might need to order more. It is beautiful, light weight and holds just the right amount of coffee.

About

Amelia creates elegant handmade tableware with a nod to the past.

Growing up in a family of artists has taught me to appreciate the handmade object. My parents both worked in clay when I was very young. I grew up using their pottery in the home and it inherently became something of great importance. I did not actually make my first piece of pottery until high school art class. At that point I became interested in not only the nostalgia of ceramics, but also of clay as a material of expression. In college I wanted to further my knowledge of clay so I spent most free hours of the day in the studio, attending workshops and working for different potters. By surrounding myself in this atmosphere I felt a great sense of community that further supported my passions.

I find a great sense of pride in being a potter because I can carry on the tradition of working with clay while expressing my love for handmade ceramics. I believe that crafting well made objects holds a deep meaning to those working with their hands. We rely on the material to translate an inner language. It is a language of patience, diligence, contemplation and expression. I want my work to communicate these ideas, as well as, speak of the sensuousness of clay as a material. My concentration rests on the idea of making forms that breathe a quiet strength that which holds the users attention, even if for a moment.

In 2002 I received a BFA in Ceramics from the University of North Carolina in Asheville. After completing college I began working in my own studio, 'Stamps Pottery'. I received several artist grants to help with the purchase of studio equipment. My work cycle revolves around exhibiting in retail and wholesale shows, online gallery sales and commissions.

My husband Hunter Stamps, 2 daughters and I happily call the bluegrass of Kentucky home. Much of the year you can find us traveling to craft shows in the region.
