Hello, My name is Amber and I make Potheads. I have been working as a ceramic artist for 7 years now with some experience in college prior to that. More than half of that time I worked consecutively as a Children's clay teacher. I focused on making functional pottery, mugs, plates, bowls, pitchers etc. I sold these at Art Fairs in Chicago for a number of years and it was all just okay. There are a lot of functional Potters in the world.
After a while I joined the Kids Program and started helping out. I quickly picked up on some sculptural techniques and was really good at breaking down the building process and creativity sprung out of me. They were just silly things that I made and I never took them seriously.
After several years of practicing I came up with Potheads, they were an idea for a Christmas Present that didn't quite come to frutrition. Not yet a year old and we are doing pretty well. I've been slowly fining tuning all the aspects of my little guys.
