Ceramic serving bowl by Amy Shinerock 10″ x 4″
Amy has been making pottery since the 1970’s. She received an M.A. in Ceramics from City College in New York, ran a pottery gallery and school in Brooklyn for several years and traveled to Japan where she learned about Japanese wood-firing techniques. As a potter, she returned to the U.S., built a wood-fired kiln and concentrated on making Japanese teaware. She has had several one-person shows in New York City. In the 1980’s family life eclipsed her ceramic work until doing therapeutic work in clay with people with disabilities brought her back to pottery. Her work continues to be strongly influenced by traditional Japanese pottery. Amy now works at home in Medford, MA where she has her studio and shows her work.
