Amanda Murphy Ceramics


Ceramicist Amanda Murphy makes decorative hand-built stoneware ceramics including vases, platters and bowls. Each piece is hand-built, inspired by movement within the landscape.

Inspired in the main by the landscape and the movement offered by views from above, the rippled bowls and jagged edge platters evoke the mountains and other undulations in the land. Amanda Murphy studied ceramic design at the Crawford College in Cork. After college she spent time travelling, dividing her time between Ireland and Australia. She then successfully completed the Pottery Throwing Skills course in Thomastown, Co Kilkenny in 2001. Amanda started making her own range of Ceramics inspired by a ‘bird’s eye view’ of the Irish landscape in 2003 and is now living in Co Waterford with her husband and children.
