Amanda Popham lives on the Devon/Dorset Border and studied at the Royal College of Art in London and it is here where she came into contact with many inspirational artists, driving her to push the boundaries of her creativity and imagination, developing her highly original style. Her reputation was established when her work was selected by Liberty's who she supplied for 20 ...years and from the earliest years of her art career she has had an ever-widening circle of collectors for her idiosyncratic and fantastic pieces. Her unique, imaginative, hand built earthenware figures and installations exude a natural spontaneity and are beautifully executed to the highest standard. Her work is beautifully decorated and many are inscribed with sayings from literature and the Bible. Amanda's ceramics are gently coloured and textured, immediately accessible though still sustaining a sense of mystery and story.
Amanda won the INAX prize, a Japanese sponsored design award, and she is also a member of The Devon Guild of Craftsmen. She has exhibited at Liberty of London as well as other private London galleries.
