Born in London, Ontario, Amanda Hickey’s love for travel was ignited at an early age when her family moved to Barbados. Her work is inspired by the history and significance of ceramics witnessed throughout her life’s adventures exploring over 20 countries. Focusing mainly on functional ware, she models her forms and highly decorated surfaces after the fashion, food and architecture she has experienced.
Amanda is currently living in London, Ontario where she has been practicing ceramics for 8 years. She is an active member of the London Clay Art Centre / London Potter’s Guild; and is the exclusive ceramic artist at Grow & Bloom Co. Amanda is currently attending Sir Fleming College: Haliburton School for Art & Design, majoring in Ceramics.
