Kiln & Ink Amy Mackle

Based on the shores of Carlingford Lough, Amy's work is made predominantly in porcelain but dabbles in different clays and materials and is inspired by many things - mainly her sense of place, the landscape and the relationship between the natural and the manufactured in our environment. She regularly facilitates and hosts ceramic workshops with community groups and children. Amy graduated from Belfast school of art in 2016 with a BA in Contemporary and applied art. She then completed a residency within the college before setting up her own studio in 2017. In 2019 Amy is due to begin a practice based PhD at Ulster centred around constructing place and identity through urban mark-making.
