Hello! I am a ceramic maker and creative facilitator based in Aberdeen City, and have been making as 'Amy Benzie Ceramics' for 5 years now. I've been fascinated by clay ever since I made my first mud pie as a child, and I am always keen to introduce people to the tactile world of ceramics. My curiosity lies in the alchemy of glaze recipes and firing. The element of unpredictability that comes from working with the materials, and the exchanges between art and science greatly inspire my otherworldly forms and textures.

I hold a BA in Ceramics and Glass from Gray's School of Art, and have experience facilitating within both academic and community settings. Currently, I work as a Senior Artist Practitioner with the Grampian Hospitals Art Trust across a number of Neuro wards in the city.
