Amber Smith

Amber Smith creates unique pieces in the field of ceramics, employing a process similar to that of an intaglio printmaker. All the words and images are drawn by hand in an intuitive manner, with details carefully carved into the black ink using a stylus. The vessels, bowls, and hearts are all crafted by hand without the use of transfers or stencils, ensuring that each piece of ceramics is entirely unique.

Amber has a passion for words and often incorporates them into their ceramic pieces. The emotional depth of Maori whakatauki (proverbs) and waiata aroha (love songs) make them a powerful element in the image's composition.

Amber specialises in creating limited edition prints. With a focus on ceramics, their work is a true testament to the beauty and uniqueness of handmade pieces. The intricate details and emotional depth imbued in each work make them truly one-of-a-kind.
