Meet the Maker: Avi Amesbury works with clay dug from a variety of locations and volcanic rock ash to create fine handmade porcelain. In her studio she focuses on exploring the possibilities of clay – shaping and forming, glazing and firing. It is from the earth and physically connects her to the environment. Experimentation with found materials and the translucency of porcelain allows her to explore ideas of land, history, place, connection and light.
