Through fresh interpretation, Amy Hughes works to elevate and celebrate the clay body and its material qualities. Working with a dynamic and lively expression, pieces are textured and stripped back to highlight natural surface richnesses that have no need for further embellishment, establishing new dialogues between form and decoration. Surface treatments become part of the structure, hinting at the decadent and the extraordinary, giving a new lease of life to objet d'art symbolic of an important time in Ceramic History. Her collections seeks to bridge a gap between the past and the present, finding a new home in contemporary culture.
