Amanda Dobbratz graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in Glasgow, UK, with a Masters in Research in Creative Practice. Previously, she received a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Wisconsin–Stout. Amanda makes functional, complex ceramics, which marry the whimsical with the pragmatic, often conveying a sense of play and humor. The sources she references for surface treatments include: the desert landscape, body ornamentation, and historical textiles. She distills the shapes and colors from her sources into a personal taxonomy of symbols— drawing the lobes of a cactus into the form of a basket, or the dot patterns found in traditional tattooing into a glaze treatment. Amanda is a 2015 Anonymous Potter Studio Fellow and currently works as Northern Clay Center’s Digital & Marketing Manager.
